    Event Summary:
    Protecting children from all forms of harm is a critical moral obligation shared by all members of society, but more so for people in positions of authority. For this purpose, state and federal laws require certain professionals, such as teachers, healthcare workers, lawyers, and other practitioners, to report any signs or suspicions of child abuse and neglect.

    However, mandated reporters face various ethical and legal challenges arising from issues of confidentiality and informed consent, as well as penalties for false reports and non-compliance. Hence, to mitigate potential risks, staying informed of the current guidelines in reporting child maltreatment is of vital importance.

    In a CLE Webcast, experienced professionals in child protection, Deborah A. Ausburn and Tom Rawlings of Taylor English Duma LLP, will provide the audience with an overview of the latest developments and issues in reporting suspected child abuse and neglect in the U.S. Speakers will also discuss practical and ethical guidelines on proper reporting protocols and offer best practices to ensure compliance with relevant laws.

    Key topics include:
    • Mandatory Reporting of Child Abuse and Neglect – An Overview
    • Basic Requirements and Reporting Guidelines
    • Roles and Responsibilities of Mandated Reporters
    • Ethical and Legal Considerations
    • Risk Mitigation and Compliance Strategies
