Notice to businesses
THE CITY OF PALM BAY, BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA, adopted Ordinance 2005-76 on November 17, 2005. The ordinance provides, in pertinent part, as follows:
It is unlawful for any business owner, manager, supervisor or employer to allow, direct, dispatch, or instruct a known sexual predator and/or sexual offender to enter into or upon any residence, including the curtilage thereof, any designated private or public school facilities or grounds, including school bus stops, any day-care center, library, after-care center, park, playground, hospital, hospice facility, nursing home, adult day-care center, dwelling, domicile, or other place where children or vulnerable adults may reside or regularly congregate, to make deliveries or perform work.
The ordinance places the responsibility on business owners, managers, supervisors or employers (hereafter “Employer”) to determine whether their employees are sexual predators or sexual offenders. Failure to make such determination can result in both a criminal conviction for violating the ordinance and the loss of a business occupational license. You are therefore required to determine if your employees, current and prospective, are sexual offenders or sexual predators and to prevent them from entering into the properties set out in the ordinance.
