The next 3 steps are required in order to comply with PA ACT 153.   The Pennsylvania Act 153 Clearance is one of the latest background check solutions for Pennsylvania organizations. The State of Pennsylvania has taken a huge step in keeping children safe by passing the PA Act 153 of 2014. This law helps to ensure that any adults who come in contact with children, either paid employees or unpaid volunteers, complete a comprehensive, and regularly updated, child abuse and Criminal Background Check.
