New Mandatory Reporter Law

The Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act was passed in 1980, which created mandated reporting for people other than just doctors for the first time. Anyone who is a mandated reporter is required to report acts and omissions constituting physical abuse, sexual abuse, willful cruelty or unjustified punishment, unlawful corporal punishment or injury, and neglect. On January 1, 2021, and effective immediately, California passed AB 1963, greatly expanding who is considered a mandated reporter. The new law makes HR employees and front-line supervisors mandated reporters. These changes will affect thousands of new businesses.
