Information for Employers of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists
The College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario (CASLPO) recognizes that employers can play a valuable role in protecting the public. Employers are in a unique position to verify registration of the audiologists and speech-language pathologists that they employ. Employers can also provide a professional and supportive environment for new graduates through CASLPO’s mentorship program.
See below for resources specifically selected to meet the needs of employers of registered audiologists and speech-language pathologists.
The Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (“RHPA”), requires employers and facilities that employ CASLPO registrants to file a written report (referred to as a “mandatory report”) with the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario in the events described here.
How to make a mandatory Report
The written report must contain:
1. your name and contact information,
2. name of the AUD or SLP;
3. the basis of the concerns underlying your report; and
4. if relevant, the name of any related patient(s) (note: must obtain consent when reporting sexual abuse).
