The Victorian Disability Worker Commissioner has the power to issue prohibition orders regarding unregistered disability workers. A prohibition order stops a person from being able to lawfully practise as a disability worker or requires that they can only work if certain conditions are met. 

The Commissioner can make a prohibition order if they are satisfied that it is necessary to avoid a serious risk to the life, health, safety or welfare of a person or the health, safety or welfare of the public, and that the unregistered disability worker:

  • has breached the Disability Service Safeguards Code of Conduct 
  • has been convicted or found guilty of a prescribed offence. The list of prescribed offences are available in Schedules 1 and 3 of the Worker Screening Act
  • has been issued an exclusion, or had a clearance suspended or revoked by an NDIS worker screening unit 
  • is the subject of an interim bar in relation to a NDIS worker screening check 
  • is the subject of (in relation to disability or health services) a prohibition order or banning order by another regulator.  

Orders may be permanent or for a limited period of up to 12 weeks (this is called an interim prohibition order). Prohibition orders may be revoked or amended or include conditions.
