Summary

Current law does not expressly recognize domestic abuse as a form
of child abuse or neglect. The bill adds domestic abuse, when a child's
parent, legal guardian, or custodian exposes a child to their perpetration

of domestic abuse, to the definition of child abuse or neglect.
Under current law, child welfare caseworkers do not have
established training policies or assessment procedures to identify and
assess situations when a child's parent, legal guardian, or custodian
exposes a child to their perpetration of domestic abuse. The bill requires
the department of human services to promulgate rules to implement
assessment policies, procedures, and training for child welfare
caseworkers to recognize and assess situations when a child's parent, legal
guardian, or custodian exposes a child to their perpetration of domestic
abuse.
