Revision 21-1; Effective April 26, 2021
The Employee Misconduct Registry (EMR) is a public database maintained by HHSC. The purpose of the EMR is to ensure that unlicensed personnel who commit acts of abuse, neglect, or exploitation against individuals receiving services are denied employment with certain facilities and providers.
A person whose name is listed on the EMR is permanently denied employment with certain facilities and providers. Facilities and providers whose employees are subject to EMR may not employ a person listed on the EMR. Other employers may use the EMR as an employment screening tool.
The Employee Misconduct Registry Search System is a public database and may be searched by any interested party.
