UC Policy on Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect (CANRA)

Earlier this year, the University announced it was proposing to issue a Policy on Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect to comply with California’s Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act (CANRA) and related amendments that took effect January 1, 2013. Since then, the policy has been revised to include comments received during the initial notice period and is now ready for final review by academic and staff employees.

CANRA requires employers, including the University, to identify Mandated Reporters (individuals required to report observed or suspected child abuse or neglect to designated law enforcement or social service agencies) and secure, as a condition of employment, acknowledgement of their status and reporting obligations.

To review the new policy, as well as Frequently Asked Questions, go to the At Your Service link in Related Information. Send any comments or questions regarding the proposed policy by May 20, 2013, to chr@chr.ucla.edu.

The final version of the UC Policy on Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect will become effective upon President Yudof’s signature.
