Title 31, Chapter 7, Section 253
After being furnished the required records check application and preliminary records check application under Code Section 31-7-252, the department shall notify in writing the license applicant as to each person for whom an application was received regarding whether the department's determination as to that person's preliminary records check was satisfactory or unsatisfactory. If the preliminary records check determination was satisfactory as to the director and each employee of an applicant's facility, that applicant may be issued a temporary license for that facility if the applicant otherwise qualifies for a license under Article 1 of this chapter. If the determination was unsatisfactory as to the director of an applicant's facility, the applicant shall designate another director for that facility after receiving notification of the determination and proceed under Code Section 31-7-252 and this Code section to obtain a preliminary records check for that newly designated director. If the determination was unsatisfactory as to any employee of an applicant's facility, the applicant shall, after receiving notification of that determination, take such steps as are necessary so that such person is no longer an employee. The applicant may not be issued a temporary license for that facility until the department has determined under the procedures of Code Section 31-7-252 and this Code section that the director and each employee have a satisfactory preliminary records check determination.
