  2. The attendant and/or assistant shall be an employee of the owner or a volunteer and all ride attendants or assistants must be at least 16 years of age.
  3. All operators must meet the appropriate training requirements to operate an amusement ride or amusement attraction.
  4. Effective January 1, 2008, no person, firm, corporation, or other entity that owns or operates a carnival or fair shall employ a carnival worker who:

  • Is a registered sex offender, as defined in the Sex Offender Registration Act, or
  • has ever been convicted of any offense set forth in Article 9 of the Criminal Code of 1961.

A person, firm, corporation, or other entity that owns or operates a carnival or fair must conduct a criminal history records check and perform a check of the Sex Offender Registry for carnival workers at the time they are hired and annually thereafter except if they are in the continued employ of the entity.

Individuals who are under the age of 17 are exempt from the criminal history records check requirements set forth in this subsection (b).Any person, firm, corporation, or other entity that owns or operates a carnival or fair must have a substance abuse policy in place for its workers, which shall include random drug testing of carnival workers.

How do I perform a sex offender registry and criminal history background check on carnival workers I employ?

Criminal history records checks may be conducted by the Illinois State Police, another state or federal law enforcement agency or a business belonging to the Professional Background Screeners Association, which Intelligents Employee & Tenant Verification belongs.

What if my operators are volunteers?​

Volunteers that operate or assist in the operation of an amusement ride or attraction open to the public are exempt from the criminal history records checks, sex offender registry checks and substance abuse policy provisions, but must comply with the training and age requirements. A volunteer is defined as a person who operates or assists in the operation of an amusement ride or amusement attraction for an owner or operator without pay or lodging, but is not otherwise employed by the same owner or operator to perform the same type of service as those for which the individual proposes to volunteer.
