Mandated Reporters of Child Abuse

Mandated Reporting of Child Abuse 

A person who, in the course of employment, occupation or practice of a profession, comes into contact with children shall report when the person has reasonable cause to suspect, on the basis of medical, professional or other training and experience, that a child under the care, supervision, guidance or training of that person or of an agency, institution, organization or other entity with which that person is affiliated is a victim of child abuse, including child abuse by an individual who is not a perpetrator.

 

In addition to those persons and officials required to report suspected child abuse, any person may make such a report if that person has reasonable cause to suspect that a child is an abused child.
