Legal and Reporting Guidelines Workbook

Social service workers are required to apply knowledge of professional legal responsibilities which are derived from statutes and the common law. They also require knowledge of laws that give effect to social policy and mandate the provision of social services. It is not essential for people credited with this standard to know all statutes and common law related to the social services, but it is necessary to understand the purpose of law and how to interpret the law in context. This workbook requires you to have a working knowledge of the legal system and the legal services in Aotearoa/New Zealand. This workbook provides training on explaining legal structures and laws for social service reports, as well as training on preparing and writing social service reports.
