When presence of agency personnel at board hearings required

(1) Unless excused from doing so by the local citizen review board, the Department of Human Services and any other agency directly responsible for the care and placement of the child or ward shall require the presence of any employees having knowledge of the case at local board meetings.

(2) The local citizen review board may require the presence of specific employees of the department or agency at local board meetings. If an employee fails to be present at such a meeting, the local review board may request a court hearing. The court may require the employee to be present and show cause why the employee should not be compelled to appear before the local citizen review board.

(3) As used in this section, "presence" includes telephone participation except that the caseworker on the case at the time of the meeting must be physically present if required. [1993 c.33 §37; 2003 c.396 §21]
