Disability workers or employers must tell us about a concern that a disability worker may be putting safety at risk, this is called a ‘notification’.
Under the Disability Service Safeguards Act 2018 (Vic), disability workers and employers must notify the Commission if they believe that a worker has engaged in certain types of misconduct.
This part of the Disability Worker Regulation Scheme helps make the Victorian Disability Worker Commission aware of potential risks to disability service users, so we can better prevent and protect people with disability from harm.
The law protects anyone who makes a notification in good faith. A person is not liable for any loss, damage or injury suffered by another person because the notification was made.
