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.
