Are Employers Required to Provide Training for Mandated Reporters?

If you employ mandated reporters, your state may require you by law to train them for the responsibility of reporting suspected child abuse and neglect. Federal Law Requires Mandated Reporting of Child Abuse and Neglect In 1974, Congress passed the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) to create a federal focus for preventing and responding to child abuse. CAPTA requires each State to have provisions or procedures for requiring certain individuals, known as mandated reporters, to report known or suspected instances of child abuse and neglect. State Laws for Mandated Reporting Vary Because CAPTA allows each state to come up with its own provisions and procedures for mandated reporting, legal requirements vary. In 47 states, for example, mandated reporters are designated by their profession. This often includes teachers, school personnel, doctors, nurses, healthcare workers, childcare providers, law enforcement, and more. In Indiana, New Jersey, and Wyoming, all persons are required to report, regardless of profession. Are Employers Required to Provide Mandated Reporter Training? Employer requirements to provide mandated reporter training also vary by state. Some states, such as California, Illinois, and Michigan, have passed legislation requiring ...

Meet California's Mandated Reporter Requirements With an LMS

As of January 1, 2021 employers throughout the state of California may be required to provide mandated reporter training to certain employees. This is due to Assembly Bill (AB) 1963, which adds HR employees and supervisors at businesses with more than 5 employees that also employ teens to the state's list of mandated reporters. AB 1963 requires that the employers of these new reporters provide the appropriate team members with mandated reporter training. That training must include information on how to identify and report child abuse and neglect. While this training requirement may be met by taking the California Department of Social Service's training, many organizations have opted to enhance their internal training programs with custom-tailored courseware that gives them control of their data and enables tracking of their training process to help with compliance. Mandated Reporter Training currently has SCORM-compliant courseware that meets the requirements of AB 1963. Two courses are available, a longer version intended for HR employees and a shorter variation for front line supervisors. Learn how an LMS and the appropriate courses can help your organization stay in compliance ...

How Organizations Can Respond to CA's New Mandated Reporter Law

On January 1, 2021, new California legislation will go into effect that makes human resources employees and some supervisors mandated reporters of child abuse. AB 1963 applies to companies that have more than 5 employees who employ minors. If one of your employees is a mandated reporter under this bill, your organization is required to provide them with training in their new duty. Previously, mandated reporters were primarily professionals working closely with young children -- teachers, daycare workers, nurses, etc. Now, however, organizations across nearly every industry will need to become familiar with the ins and outs of mandated reporting. This groundbreaking new law will help protect teens in the workplace in the state of California, but it may cause some headaches for businesses looking to navigate the situation. Because employers are required to provide training under AB 1963, it's important to find a quick, effective solution. What Your Organization Needs to Know About Complying With California's AB 1963 The Law Requires You to Provide Training Assembly Bill 1963 requires employers of the impacted human resources employees and supervisors to provide training on the ...
