What happens if DVR receives information that indicates I have a previous history of behavior involving violent or predatory acts?

(1) If a VR counselor receives information or records that reasonably lead the VR counselor to believe you have a previous history of violent or predatory behavior, you must participate in an assessment conducted by a licensed psychiatrist, psychologist, counselor, certified sex offender treatment provider, or other qualified professional prior to developing a plan for employment. The assessment is for the purpose of determining the level of risk you present to yourself or others in an employment situation.
(2) The VR counselor must consider the results and recommendations of the assessment in developing the plan for employment, including any restrictions relating to employment outcome or employment setting.
(3) If the results of the assessment indicate a potential risk to a service provider or employer, the individual must consent to release information about the behavior to a potential service provider or potential employer prior to referral for services.
