Duty to inform and duty to report

Listen to a read-aloud version of the text on this page

You have a duty to provide information if the Child Welfare Service requests information about a case wherein they suspect neglect, physical abuse, sexual assault etc. (the Education Act Section 15-3 and the Kindergarten Act Section 22).

The duty to report is essentially the same as the duty to provide information, with the key difference of it being YOUR responsibility to report it if you suspect neglect or assault.
