Purchase WorkbookDocument Format:
Employees who work with minors, or have direct contact with them, are obligated to report known or reasonably suspected child abuse or neglect. Teachers, lifeguards, instructional aides, school and youth organization administrators, community college instructors, and camp counselors are just some of the positions considered to be mandated reporters of child abuse and neglect in California.
This workbook provides a comprehensive overview of the California Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act ("CANRA"), the law regarding mandated reporting. The workbook addresses some of the most common (and complex) questions related to a mandated reporter's reporting obligation. The workbook also contains employer resources, including a statutorily required mandated reporter acknowledgement form, a reporting checklist and strategies for employers to use in the event that a child abuse investigation arises from a mandated report.
