The following information must be read and agreed to as part of the Disability Worker Exclusion Scheme:
I am aware that the Department of Health and Human Services (the department) operates a Disability Worker Exclusion Scheme and has a Disability Worker Exclusion List (the List).
I consent to my personal details being provided to the department for the purpose of checking against the List. I consent to the department collecting personal information and sensitive personal information about me, including information relating to any criminal, disciplinary and employment history of mine, for the purposes of the department compiling and maintaining the List.
I accept that if my name is on or is placed on the List, I will be prevented from being engaged by a disability service provider (as defined in the Disability Act 2006) as:
- A Disability Worker, being a person engaged by a disability service provider who:
- provides, or supervises or manages a person who provides, direct support to a person with a disability, and
- has direct contact or access to a person with a disability
and excluded from any work at the disability service that falls within the definition of:
- Excluded Work being work at a disability service:
- as a Disability Worker, or
- that involves regular direct contact with or access to a person with a disability.
I agree that the department may inform any disability service provider or authorised labour hire agency that has engaged me that I am on the List, or that I am the subject of a Notification by a disability service provider.
I agree to inform EACH of the name and address of any other disability service provider I am, or intend to be, engaged by.
As a provider of Disability Services, EACH may be required to check your name against the Disability Worker Exclusion List (DWEL) - this step would generally occur when progressing past an interview. Should your application progress, your date of birth is required by the Disability Worker Exclusion Scheme.
You can read more about EACH's requirements here.
