New Disclosure Law Applies to Park District Volunteers

The Illinois General Assembly recently enacted P.A. 100-0472. The Act amends the Park District Code to mandate that park districts require volunteers to submit an application prior to beginning any work as a volunteer for the park district. That application must include a question whether the volunteer has been convicted of or found to be a child sex offender. The law also prohibits a park district from knowingly hiring a volunteer who has been convicted of or found to be a child sex offender. Finally, the law requires any current volunteer to disclose any such conviction to the park district.
