We provide a range of screening background checks on behalf of organisations that are engaging employees and volunteers.
The Unit offers five different types of screening check. For details about the different types of check, please refer to about the different types of screening check.
Your organisation is responsible for determining which, if any, employees or volunteers need to be screened in relation to their work or volunteer role, and if so, what type of screening should be conducted.
Employer organisations are also responsible for commencing the screening process for their employees and volunteers. For more details, see How to Apply.
