The Victorian Parliament has now passed those changes.  At this stage they are scheduled to come into effect on 1 August 2017.

We recommend your organisation start to take steps now to ensure that everyone who needs to have a Working with Children Check has one in place before the legislation comes into effect.

If you need help with this, please contact Elizabeth Shalders (Senior Associate, Head of Not-for-Profit Law) or Joshua Davis (Lawyer) or call (03) 9629 9629.
