Please be patient with us as we update our newsletter index. This issue, published in 2008, addresses mandatory reporting on child abuse, and the definition of "employee" under various federal anti-discrimination statutes. 08-0320083v08n03mar2008.pdf
In today's Firehouse Lawyer we focus on when a donation to a nonprofit corporation may be deemed an unconstitutional gift of public funds; we also report on a Washington case which reminds us that fire departments may be sued when one of their paramedics or EMT's fails to report suspected abuse of a child or vulnerable adult. 14-0520165May2016FINAL.pdf
At times, state agencies get it wrong, and today we discuss that, with respect to the stripping of pensions from elected officials not working in "eligible positions" under DRS regulations; we also discuss RCW 71.05, one of the involuntary detention laws; a sweeping case involving the mandatory reporting duty in cases of child abuse and neglect; the employee's responsibility under the vertical safety standards; and finally, we outline some of the most common issues the State Auditor keeps running into, with respect to fire districts and RFAs. 15-0320173March2017FINAL.pdf
