Mandated Reporter Training
Category: Seminars / Webinars
Date Start: May 9, 2017 10:00 AM

Employees whose duties require contact with and/or supervision of children are considered “mandated reporters.” This workshop provides mandated reporters with the training that is suggested and encouraged by the California Penal Code to help them understand their obligations. It is essential that mandated reporters understand their legal duties not only to help ensure the safety and welfare of children, but because the duty to report is imposed on individual employees, not their agencies. Moreover, a lack of training does not relieve mandated reporters of this important duty.
This workshop, designed for any employee who is a mandated reporter, or who supervises mandated reporters, explains this complex area of the law, including: what constitutes child abuse and neglect; the specific reporting obligations of mandated reporters; how to file a report; protections for reporters; the consequences for failing to file a report; and appropriate employer reporting policies. This practical workshop includes an interactive discussion of typical scenarios that could trigger a duty to report suspected abuse or neglect.
Who Should Attend?
Supervisors, Managers, Any mandated reporters, including Department of Parks and Recreation, Administrators and Employees, Athletic Coaches, Child Care Center Staff, Day Camp Administrators and Employees, Youth Program Administrators and Employees, Animal Control Officers, and of course, teachers.
