Legal Academy review of child abuse registry 

Effective July 1, 2016, Georgia’s Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) began maintaining a centralized registry of all substantiated cases of child abuse and neglect.  This registry, known as the Child Protective Services Information System, allows employers of certain child-serving agencies to determine if a job applicant presents a risk to children.  This presentation will review the requirements of state law and discuss the implications of the registry for clients served by the child welfare legal community.  So join us on Tuesday, November 29, from 2:00-4:15 p.m. for a live presentation with Diana Rugh Johnson.
