Griffin Legal Session: Workplace Reportable Conduct & Child Protection Obligations

In response to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, the ACT Government released a Reportable Conduct Scheme on 1 July 2017. The Scheme is designed to ensure that allegations concerning child protection are identified, reported and acted on appropriately, at an employment based level. The reportable conduct scheme is allegation based and what constitutes reportable conduct has broad reach. It relates to employee conduct 24/7 and is not simply contained within the boundaries of a workplace.

But what does this mean for you?

We will guide you through the current child protection legislation and what constitutes reportable conduct. We will outline methods for how your organisation can implement change to improve practices and response plans to address allegations. We will provide some best practice suggestions on how to comply with your statutory obligations and manage your duty of care owed to children, employees and your business.

This session is of benefit for any organisation that works closely with children and regulators.

The discussion will be led by Partner, Claire Carton and Special Counsel, Shannon Say. Our Employment Team has experience in a range of Employment matters, including claims in the Fair Work Commission, Policy and Procedure Updates, Contractual Disputes, Restraints of Trade, Redundancies and Workplace Investigations.

This is a free event open to all, please feel free to forward this invitation on to anyone who may be interested.
