PREA prohibits the Oregon Youth Authority from hiring, promoting, or contracting with anyone (that will have direct contact with residents) who has engaged in, been convicted of, or been civilly or administratively adjudicated for engaging in sexual abuse in confinement settings. For more information regarding PREA please visit:--

                    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.
