Brooks Pierce Attorney Presents to the North Carolina Association of Independent Schools on Changes to Mandatory Reporting Laws
Brooks Pierce attorney Elizabeth Troutman presented to the North Carolina Association of Independent Schools on changes to mandatory reporting laws on March 2.
The webinar discussed Session Law 2019-245, enacted by the North Carolina General Assembly, which changes the laws around reporting certain criminal acts perpetrated against children. Troutman provided school personnel information on what must be reported under these very broad definitions and how to report in a manner that protects the school from criminal liability.
Troutman also authored an alert with Brooks Pierce partner Jill Wilson on this law. To access the full alert, click here.
Troutman advises public school boards of education, private educational institutions, colleges and universities on a wide range of education issues, and litigates on behalf of educational institutions in state and federal courts. She also helps clients in a variety of industries navigate the complexities of human resources and employment law issues, including employment policies and employee separation.
