Kotin, Lawrence; And Others
This guide offers a comprehensive basis from which administrators of day care centers can identify legal issues and become aware of laws applying to the resolution of those issues. Sections of the guide focus on (1) choosing an organization type, (2) forming the organization, (3) formal legal requirements in establishing the program, (4) basic management considerations, (5) insurance and contracts, (6) liability and board/director/staff legal relationships, (7) licensing requirements, (8) zoning, (9) aspects of personnel law (wages, benefits, and working conditions), (10) anti-discrimination, (11) medical care and treatment, (12) issues relating to custody, (13) responding to suspected cases of child abuse and neglect, (14) serving handicapped children, and (15) maintenance of records and the right to privacy. While much of the handbook does not address itself specifically to problems of family day care providers, some material is relevant to operators of family day care programs. (BJD)
