Job Disqualifications

A job disqualification is when the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) or the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) stops you from working in a job where you have “direct contact” with people getting services in a covered setting. It is usually because of something in your background report or record. Direct care jobs can be jobs in:

  • Healthcare
  • Child care
  • Foster care
  • Nursing homes


What kinds of things disqualify me and for how long?
