Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act

The Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act (CANRA) is a California law requiring employers, including the University, to identify Mandated Reporters and secure acknowledgement of their status and reporting obligation as a condition of employment.  A Mandated Reporter is defined as an individual required to report observed or suspected child abuse or neglect to designated law enforcement or social services agencies. (A child is defined as anyone under the age of 18 years.)

Specific positions within UCSC are designated as mandatory reporters and are required to sign the CANRA Acknowledgement Form, however as an internal process, Athletics and Recreation requires each of their employees/volunteers to sign the CANRA form upon hire and on an annual basis.  More specific information on CANRA can be found on the following webpage: Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act (CANRA)

CANRA Mandatory Reporter Form-The first page of the packet is the Mandatory Reporter Form that needs signature. You only need to print out the FIRST PAGE and include that with Volunteer Paperwork. The remaining pages in the packet are informational for the Employee/Volunteer.
