Mandated Reporters: This video is an excellent program for those that are mandated by law to report suspecions of child abuse or child neglect. Designed to provide a general overview and/or a refresher for those employees that have occupations that come in contact with children and minors such as restaurants, grocery stores, retail stores, etc. Some occupations are required by state statute, to report signs and suspicion of child abuse and/or neglect. This includes many occupations in the public sector such as public schools, law enforcement, fire fighters, county social services, as well as many other city and state occupations. There are also many private sector occupations such as private schools, hospital workers, health clinics, nurses and doctors, emergency responders, youth organizations, and child care centers just to name a few. This video covers generally what you should look for and is expected of you, types of abuse and neglect, when signs or suspicions of abuse should raise a red flag and trigger reporting, what, as a mandated reporter, is your exposure to legal retaliation, your legal protection and anonymity, and much more. Hear interviews from professionals and experts.
