What if abuse goes unreported? What employees are considered Mandated Reporters? Mandated Reporters are employees in contact with minors. They are required to report abuse or can be fined and even serve jail time.
As of January 1, 2021, California businesses face new legal guidelines and reporting requirements to remain compliant with Assembly Bill 1963. Companies with as few as five employees are subject to these stipulations.
It is imperative that organizations train their employees now to fulfill their legal requirements, and also protect their employees and avoid costly penalties.
