CSP205A Legal Issues in Child Welfare: Liability and Data Practices
A recent MN Supreme Court decision opens liability to Child Protection workers, their supervisors, and the agencies that employ them where it never existed before. This class discusses the ramifications of that decision, provides insight as to areas where Child Protection workers may be most vulnerable to lawsuits, and strategies to prevent lawsuits from occurring. It also touches on the basics of the Data Practices Act. Participants will learn what data is available to them as Child Protection Workers, and the proper means to obtain and protect that data.
