                The Oregon Youth Authority (OYA) is responsible for complying with the federal Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA 42 U.S.C. 1997). Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) prohibits OYA from hiring, promoting or contracting with anyone (who has direct contact with residents) who have been convicted of engaging or attempting to engage in sexual activity in the community facilitated by force, overt or implied threats of force, or coercion, or if the victim did not consent or was unable to consent or refuse.
                This standard requires OYA to conduct criminal background checks, conduct a check of the state's child abuse registry, and made its best efforts to contact prior institutional employers to obtain this information.
                The Center for Disease Control (CDC) requires correctional organizations to ensure that their employees are Tuberculosis (TB) free. All OYA employees are required to submit to a two-step TB test which is currently the requirement of the CDC to establish a TB free "base line." Rather than OYA conducting the test, employees may choose to work with their personal health care providers to provide the agency with medical documentation that demonstrates that they are TB free. If offered employment and you accept, OYA will offer you the TB testing, and if you refuse, OYA will require the necessary documentation from your personal health care provider as a condition of employment.Veteran's Points:
