The Employee Disqualification Registry (EDR) is a list of individuals disqualified from working with consumers receiving services from the department. Specific rules governing placement on the EDR can be found in Department Operating Regulations and Title 9 Code of State Regulations 10-5.200. The list contains the names of individuals with disqualifying charges of abuse, neglect, and/or misuse of funds who have exhausted their appeal process. The EDR does not include the names of individuals who may be disqualified for other reasons (e.g. a person has a disqualifying criminal conviction or placed on the Department of Health and Senior Services Employee Disqualification List (EDL).
In the State of Missouri, the EDR can be checked by using the Missouri State Highway Patrol Caregiver Background Screening Service or the Department of Health and Senior Services Family Care Safety Registry. Both methods include the ability to check the Department of Health and Senior Services Employee Disqualification List (EDL), the Department of Social Services Child Abuse and Neglect Central Registry and Missouri criminal history. Links to the two services are included below.
