Combating Financial Exploitation: A New Tool (Nov. 2014)
The North Carolina General Assembly recently took action to expand and amend the state's legal framework for addressing financial exploitation of older adults and disabled adults. As part of this, the legislature changed the processes available when a report of elder financial exploitation is received (per Article 6A of Chapter 108A of the General Statutes). Learn how these legal changes could affect your work by viewing the one-hour webinar recording where experts discuss actual scenarios and answer questions. The NCAOC Organizational Development Division collaborated with a panel of North Carolina subject matter experts to design this one-hour webinar that will help improve your knowledge and understanding of the options available in cases involving disabled and older adults. The panel includes experts from The Department of Health and Human Services, The Department of Justice, UNC School of Government, and the NC Administrative Office of the Courts.
