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 ...
