The Child Abuse And Neglect Reporting Act (CANRA)


Please join Meyers Nave attorney Camille Hamilton Pating for an informative webinar discussing The Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act (CANRA). CANRA requires many public employees that work with children to report suspected child abuse or neglect under State law. Over the years, numerous amendments have expanded the definition of abuse and the persons required to report. Recent changes in the law now include public employees who come in contact with or have access to youth through enrichment and recreation programs, in the class of "mandated reporters."  You need to know if you or staff members are "mandated reporters" and your related responsibilities.  This session is essential information for such managers, including Human Resources professionals, Department Heads, Agency Counsel, program managers and counselors who supervise year-round and summer youth programs. 

Learning objectives:

  • Who is a mandated reporter?
  • When must a mandated reporter make a report to the authorities?
  • Whom do you contact and when? 
  • What happens if a mandated reporter fails to make a required report?
  • What protections are there for mandated reporters who make reports?  Can you be sued?
