Workforce Guardian's online HR system and support service includes tools to help employers manage licences and registrations.
It is important that employers regularly check that all workers have the relevant licences and registrations required to lawfully perform all tasks and responsibilities in order to carry out their duties. In many cases, employers may also require evidence of licenses and registrations before making an offer of employment.
- a school teacher in Queensland, must firstly register with the Queensland College of Teachers
- electricians in Queensland, must hold an electrical work licence
- car and truck licenses are required in order to operate these vehicles throughout Australia
In some industries such as child care and entertainment, it is mandatory to hold and maintain a 'working with children' permit in order to perform work with children.
Accordingly, it is crucial that an employer to keep track of all licensing and registrations to ensure they are current and to confirm when they are required to be renewed. Such a requirement should be included into a policy that requires all workers to advise them immediately if any work related licences become invalid for any reason.
