Employment-related child protection

Ombudsman's role in relation to employment-related child protection

Part 3A of the Ombudsman Act 1974 requires the Ombudsman to keep under scrutiny the systems that government and certain non-government agencies in NSW have for preventing reportable conduct and handling reportable allegations and convictions involving their employees.

‘Designated agencies’ must notify us of all reportable allegations and convictions that arise inside or outside the employee’s work.

Designated agencies include:

‘Other public authorities’ are only required to notify reportable allegations or convictions that arise in the course of the employee’s work.

We must decide whether an investigation into a reportable allegation or conviction against an employee of a designated agency that has been notified to us has been properly conducted, and whether appropriate action was taken as a result of the investigation.
