AN ACT CONCERNING MINOR AND TECHNICAL REVISIONS TO STATUTES AFFECTING CHILDREN AND YOUTH

SUMMARY: This act restricts the Department of Children and Families' (DCF) duty to disclose records in certain situations. Prior law required DCF to disclose a record, subject to applicable law and without the consent of the person who is the subject of the record, to a DCF employee for any purpose reasonably related to DCF business. Under the act, DCF may make such a disclosure only if it is reasonably related to the performance of the employee's duties.

The act also makes minor, technical, and conforming changes in certain statutes affecting children and youth.

EFFECTIVE DATE: October 1, 2012
