If so what are their responsibilities and what are they required to do, and furthermore, what protective are in place for them in case they face any retaliation for undertaking such statutory reporting obligations.

  • I have found NYS bill 7651 which makes an insertion of section 413 subsection 459-i to the social services law in 2018 but this was in 2018. I'm more interested in anything that was in effect in the later months of 2011. Also, I'm wondering if psychological abuses would qualify to invoke these provisions. Commented Jun 7, 2022 at 16:44
