Petitioner's Request

Amend 12 VAC 35-115-180 to establish the findings of an abuse allegation as a basis for an LHRC fact-finding hearing.

Agency's Plan

The Board anticipates it will consider public comments on this request at its November 30, 2010 meeting and will then determine what appropriate action is required.

Comment Period Ended 11/1/2010
Agency Decision Take no action [Transmittal Sheet]    
Response Date 12/3/2010
Agency Decision Summary

The proposed change would diminish an individual's right to choose whether an allegation of abuse should come before the LHRC for a fact finding hearing. Presently this is a personal decision; the proposed change would make an LHRC fact-finding hearing mandatory.
