Employers check the Check
At the Office of the Children’s Guardian, their goal is to create safe places for children and young people, and we recognise that most organisations share this goal.
To help child-related organisations create safer places, the Office of the Children’s Guardian will be following an escalation model of compliance and enforcement with a focus on capability building in organisations.
They have a new Compliance and Enforcement policy that makes it clear what is expected of organisations that work with children. This year their focus is on ensuring child-related employers are:
If your organisation works with children and you are not complying with these laws, fines apply – but you do have some time to get your records in order.
They are offering a one-off amnesty for employers to verify their workers by 30 June 2021. This amnesty applies to employers who engage workers in child-related work that:
After this date, enforcement action will be taken against employers who have not complied with this obligation.
There will be no amnesty period for employers that engage people in child-related work who are barred or interim barred from working with children as it places children and young persons at serious risk of harm.
We are deeply saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Vic Hocking. Vic’s love and support of the game was endless.
His first involvement with baseball was back in the Early ’80s with Canterbury Bankstown Baseball Club. With his endless support to the club, he became the Patron of the Club which then lead to the Club becoming the Vikings.
An absolute gentleman, & friend to all that crossed his path. Vic was also the Commissioner of BNSW for some time, again putting his time and effort into helping promote our game.
His love and support of the game grew and continued with him serving as the Commissioner of BNSW for several years. Vic also served as the Manager (EO) of the NSW Claxton Shield Team highlighted by 2 Titles in 2004 & 2005.
