On the 4th of December 2020, Queensland’s ‘Disability Services and Other Legislation (Worker Screening) Amendment Act 2020’ was passed. The amendment aligns Queensland’s worker screening practices with the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission’s national worker screening requirements.
Worker screening in Queensland will remain the responsibility of the Department of Seniors, Disability Services and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships.
This webinar will provide an overview of the changes in worker screening practices and processes and highlight implications for disability service providers.
Our thanks to Michelle Bullen, Director, Safeguards, Disability Connect Qld and her team for this presentation.
