Disability Worker Exclusion Scheme

The Disability Worker Exclusion Scheme is a new initiative from the Victorian Government designed to further protect the safety and wellbeing of Victorians living in disability group homes.

Consistent with feedback from the disability sector and key stakeholders, the Disability Worker Exclusion Scheme will require disability service providers to conduct an additional pre-employment check under the scheme, prior to making an offer of employment.
