      Section: 5:12-91: Registration of casino employees.

91. Registration of Casino Employees. a. No person may commence employment as a casino employee unless such person has a valid registration on file with the division, which registration shall be prepared and filed in accordance with the regulations promulgated hereunder.

b. A casino employee registrant shall produce such information as the division by regulation may require. Subsequent to the registration of a casino employee, the director may revoke, suspend, limit, or otherwise restrict the registration upon a finding that the registrant is disqualified on the basis of the criteria contained in section 86 of P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-86). If a casino employee registrant has not been employed in any position within a casino hotel facility for a period of three years, the registration of that casino employee shall lapse.

c. (Deleted by amendment, P.L.2011, c.19)

d. Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection b. of this section, no casino employee registration shall be revoked on the basis of a conviction of any of the offenses enumerated in this act as disqualification criteria or the commission of any act or acts which would constitute any offense under subsection c. of section 86 of P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-86), as specified in subsection g. of that section, provided that the registrant has affirmatively demonstrated the registrant's rehabilitation. In determining whether the registrant has affirmatively demonstrated the registrant's rehabilitation the director shall consider the following factors:

(1) The nature and duties of the registrant's position;

(2) The nature and seriousness of the offense or conduct;

(3) The circumstances under which the offense or conduct occurred;

(4) The date of the offense or conduct;

(5) The age of the registrant when the offense or conduct was committed;

(6) Whether the offense or conduct was an isolated or repeated incident;

(7) Any social conditions which may have contributed to the offense or conduct;

(8) Any evidence of rehabilitation, including good conduct in prison or in the community, counseling or psychiatric treatment received, acquisition of additional academic or vocational schooling, successful participation in correctional work-release programs, or the recommendation of persons who have or have had the registrant under their supervision.

g. For the purposes of this section, each registrant shall submit to the division the registrant's name, address, fingerprints and written consent for a criminal history record background check to be performed. The division is hereby authorized to exchange fingerprint data with and receive criminal history record information from the State Bureau of Identification in the Division of State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation consistent with applicable State and federal laws, rules and regulations. The registrant shall bear the cost for the criminal history record background check, including all costs of administering and processing the check. The Division of State Police shall promptly notify the division in the event a current or prospective licensee, who was the subject of a criminal history record background check pursuant to this section, is arrested for a crime or offense in this State after the date the background check was performed.
