The Secure Local Jobs Registrar is responsible for monitoring compliance and investigating complaints and noncompliance. Anyone who believes on reasonable grounds that you’re not complying with the Code can make a written complaint to the Registrar.

The Registrar will determine how the complaint will be actioned. This may include working with you to rectify alleged noncompliance, conducting an investigation, or requesting an audit. You will have the opportunity to respond to the complaint if the Registrar decides to investigate. If the complaint relates to alleged noncompliance with other legislation, the Registrar can refer the complaint to the relevant Regulatory Authority.

Consequences of non compliance

Breaches of the Code can lead to suspension or cancellation of your Code Certificate or conditions may be added to it. For example, you may not be able to apply for a Code Certificate for 12 months. The Registrar can also impose infringement points for noncompliance. If you accumulate 100 infringement points over two years, your Code Certificate can be suspended or cancelled. The Secure Local Jobs Code Complaints and Noncompliance Investigation Guidelines has more information on the complaints process and consequences of noncompliance.
