In the wake of the largest sexual abuse settlement in US history, Assembly Bill No. 506 (AB506) became law in California on September 16, 2021. The legislative history of AB506 makes it clear that lawmakers in California do not want a repeat of the sexual abuse crises facing Boy Scouts of America.
The new law is aimed at ‘Youth Service Organizations’ and outlines requirements related to training, background checks and policies. At a glance, this appears to be a step in the right direction; upon closer review, the new law creates difficulties likely unexpected by the drafters. Nonetheless, youth service organizations now have a new legal Standard of Care related to sexual abuse risk management.
In addition to clarifying the new California state requirements, the webinar will examine an effective child safety system helping organizations meet legal standards of care and reduce the risk of sexual abuse.
Registration is free and limited to the first 1,000 registrants. Please email Sales@ccia.com if you have any questions.
