Pre-employment check

When considering employing a person, it is critical that principals, managers and school councils check that person’s record on the department’s central payroll to ensure that no employment limitation has been applied.

The central payroll should be checked even where the person is to be employed on the local payroll of a school.

This is to ensure that former employees who were dismissed for highly inappropriate behaviour, or who resigned during an investigation of serious allegations, are not re-employed in the department or schools.
