The Stephen Komninos’ Law was enacted in 2017 and strengthens protections for participants of any New Jersey Department of Human Services (DHS) funded, licensed or regulated program for adults with developmental disabilities, including State developmental centers and community programs. The law recognizes the important role of guardians and family members in the lives of adults with developmental disabilities and establishes greater communication links between providers and guardians. Effective May 1, 2018, every person who is employed by or volunteering in any DHS-funded, licensed or regulated program serving adults with developmental disabilities is subject to the requirements of this law.
