Mandatory Reporting in Mediation: Elder Abuse
Wednesday, September 29, 2010
Noon – 1:15 p.m.
Supreme Court Conference Room
Are there mandatory reporting requirements for mediators? Is there ever a duty to report? Should mediators protect one of the core values of mediation, privacy/confidentiality, in every situation?
With the growing elder population in Hawai`i and the commensurate growth in family conflicts involving elder family members and/or issues, more of these matters are being addressed through mediation. This fact together with the high incidence of elder abuse requires a close look at the responsibilities and duties of mediators, particularly in regards to reporting.
To discuss the issues of whether mediators are mandatory reporters and, if yes, how should mediators report, we are pleased to invite you to participate in a lively discussion with an esteemed panel of experts including:
Charles H. Hurd, Attorney/Mediator
Professor James Pietsch, Director, U.H. Elder Law Program
David Tanaka, Unit Supervisor of Adult Protective & Community Services Unit 1
