House Bill 2480 mandates the Arizona Department of Child Safety (DCS) to establish policies for conducting random quarterly drug screenings of employees at group foster homes. The bill specifies that employees cannot have contact with children living in the group foster home until they have passed an initial drug screening. Additionally, DCS is authorized to perform random drug tests on any employee involved in an incident where a child is injured. Group foster homes are required to report the results of all drug screenings to DCS within 48 hours. The bill introduces these new requirements by adding section 8-530.06 to title 8, chapter 4, article 4 of the Arizona Revised Statutes.
