I think that might be wise. Reporting obligations protect the company (or school) from lawsuits as it shifts the onus upon supervisor-as-representatives-of-the-company but can create an environment of secrecy for the same reason. Many things, such as this, that are *called* victim’s rights, aren’t. If you’re a co-worker, you’re not obligated. But if you’re a supervisor, or at a supervisor level – even if she is in another department – I *think* you might now be “company representative” level.

But I hope not. I don’t like this kind of stuff. I think mandatory reporting is awful as it destroys trust.

It’s that weird battle between a “Good Samaritan law” vs “a duty to rescue law”.
