Kozlowski, James C.
Parks & Recreation, v35 n12 p36,38-41,43-44 Dec 2000
It has become easier to conduct background checks over the Internet. Youth agencies must implement this information to screen applicants for working in youth programs. This paper highlights a legal case in which the plaintiff claimed he was repeatedly molested by his scoutmaster, calling the Scouts negligent in hiring and monitoring the scoutmaster and educating the children about molestation.
