We have had many members in the NGO sector contact us regarding the Disability Worker Exclusion Scheme Consent and Acknowledgement Form.
Our industrial team have spoken to DWES and the DHHS, and have confirmed that if an employee does sign the consent form, this will only give the employer permission to check to see if your name is on the DWES list. Access to any other information will not be granted.
If your name is already on the DWES list, you would have already been notified as such.
If you have any further concerns about signing the consent form, HACSU ask that you please speak to your organiser or call HACSU ASSIST on 1300 651 931.
