2010 Florida Statutes

Direct service providers; private sector services.
F.S. 393.0654

Direct service providers; private sector services.

It is not a violation of s. 112.313(7) for a direct service provider who is employed by the agency to own, operate, or work in a private facility that is a service provider under contract with the agency if:


The employee does not have any role in the agency’s placement recommendations or the client’s decisionmaking process regarding placement;


The direct service provider’s employment with the agency does not compromise the ability of the client to make a voluntary choice among private providers for services;


The employee’s employment outside the agency does not create a conflict with the employee’s public duties and does not impede the full and faithful discharge of the employee’s duties as assigned by the agency; and


The service provider discloses the dual employment or ownership status to the agency and all clients within the provider’s care. The disclosure must be given to the agency, the client, and the client’s guardian or guardian advocate, if appropriate.


s. 15, ch. 2006-227.
