Michigan PA 511 is an ambiguously written law that claims to put a checks & balances on CPS. What it does in reality is allows CPS to violate the law & CPS protocol. If the worker does violate the law & CPS protocol, the supervisor "investigates" & explains why the laws & protocol were violated. Then it is passed to the office director who repeats the process. The way the law is currently stated is that the office director can them close the case. I was told by the senator who wrote the bill's office is that the office director is supposed to notify the higher ups & there is supposed to be a "thorough" investigation. Unfortunately, the intent of the law & letter of the law are very different. The practice of the law does not in any way follow the intent of the law.
I was told there is a strict checks & balances the worker MUST follow in the investigation. That list is also very ambiguous.
