Overturn Decision to Suspend Work With Children’s Check

Overturn Decision to Suspend Work With Children's CheckOur client was charged with various domestic violence offences against his then partner. These are largely disputed. He has a current working with children’s check and received a notice of intention to suspend as a result of the yet unproven charges.

We provided legal representation for the client.

Lengthy written submissions were required to address the working with children’s check unit concerns as to whether our client was a fit and proper person to hold the pass until the conclusion of his criminal matters. This was particularly important to him as he required the clearance to remain employed.

We were able to write lengthy written submissions on the client’s behalf addressing the working with children’s check unit concerns and convincing them to reconsider their intention to suspend. They overturned their decision which allowed our client to continue his employment.
