The Authority has recently created two new policy templates to assist members with the development of a policy for mandated reporter requirements. One template is specific to mandated reporter requirements as they pertain to children, and the other pertains to the elderly and dependent adults. The templates identify employees who are required to report child, elder, or dependent adult abuse under the law; set forth the timeline and procedures for making reports; and establish additional obligations of the agency and its employees and volunteers.
The mandated reporter policy templates are available in the “Policy Templates” section of the Resources and Documents library on the Authority’s website. For questions on these resources, members can contact their assigned regional risk manager.
