Discussion Ended on 11/01/2019
The Board recently revised its position statement entitled “Child maltreatment”. The position is updated to state that licensees who report suspected child maltreatment in good faith are granted criminal and civil immunity by state law. The Board will accept feedback on the proposed revision through close of business on Nov. 1, 2019.
