You are part of a powerful collective that has convinced the DOE to reimburse the cost of your Working with Children Check (WwCC).
Many of you raised concerns about the cost of those checks and they were put directly to the DOE in writing and in meetings and it has now agreed to pay your WwCC fee.
The current fee for the check is up to $103.60 and this will now be reimbursed by your employer.
You should have received communications from the DOE detailing the changes which apply retrospectively from 1 October 2015.
If you have any problems claiming your reimbursement contact us.
Congratulations on your win – being “in union” makes you powerful!
