OYA is responsible for complying with the federal Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA 42 U.S.C 1997). PREA prohibits the Oregon Youth Authority (OYA) from hiring, promoting, or contracting with anyone who has engaged in, been convicted of, or been civilly or administratively adjudicated for engaging in sexual abuse in confinement settings.

This standard requires OYA to conduct criminal background checks, conduct a check of the state's child abuse registry, and make its best efforts to contact prior institutional employers to obtain this information.

For more information regarding PREA please visit:

All positions in OYA require the incumbent to serve as a "mandatory reporter" of child abuse.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) requires correctional organizations to ensure that their employees are Tuberculosis (TB) free. All OYA employees are required to submit to a two-step TB test which is currently the requirement of the CDC to establish a TB free "base line" or, rather than OYA conducting the test, employees may choose to work with their personal health care providers to provide the agency with medical documentation that demonstrates that they are TB free. If offered employment and you accept, OYA will offer you the TB testing and if you refuse, OYA will require the necessary documentation from your personal health care provider as a condition of employment.
