From 1 July 2011 it will be law for people who are employed or volunteer in "child-related" work
to have a Working with Children Clearance Notice. A penalty of up to $65,000 can be issued to an
individual if they are found to be in breach of this law.
It is the responsibility of the person who wants to work or volunteer with children to apply for the Clearance Notice and ensure that it remains valid
If a candidate is currently working in "child-related" employment or intends to, they will need to apply for a Clearance Notice as soon as possible.
