Working With Children Matters
Due to recent changes in legislation, there has been a growth in the number of employees who require Working With Children Clearance checks from the NSW Office of the Children’s Guardian. Unfortunately, past events can have an adverse impact upon the decision of the NSW Office of Children Guardian in determining whether to grant such a clearance.
Should your Working With Children clearance check be refused, we can provide advice on commencing an application in the Tribunal seeking a review of this decision, including preparing the application, affidavit evidence in support and appearing on your behalf at the hearing of the application.
We provide advice and representation in licensing review matters in the Tribunal, including taxi drivers who have had their licenses suspended or individuals who have received notification that they are prohibited from possessing a firearm.
During the course of employment or volunteering in organisations in New South Wales, instances arise which may constitute discrimination, harassment, victimisation or vilification pursuant to the Anti Discrimination Act 1977 (NSW). Matters are dealt with in the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board (ADB) in the first instance, but if not resolved, will be referred to the Tribunal.
We provide legal services in discrimination matters in the Tribunal, such as drafting pleadings and evidence, representing you to.
