Mandated Reporters of Child Abuse and Neglect under CANRA and Executive Order 1083


The California Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act, California Penal Code §§ 11164-11174.3 ("CANRA"), identifies certain groups of employees as "Mandated Reporters" of child abuse and also imposes various obligations on and extends certain protections to those Mandated Reporters as well as their employers. As a covered employer, the California State University (CSU) is required to comply with CANRA. Executive Order 1083 is the CSU systemwide policy which provides guidance to CSU Employees on the reporting requirements of CANRA.

In addition to the legal obligations that CANRA imposes, it is the policy of the CSU to require all Management Personnel Plan employees and all volunteers, and to strongly encourage all other members of the CSU community who are not designated under the Act, to report child abuse and neglect occurring on CSU premises or at an official activity of, or program conducted by, the CSU.
