You are invited to join us for a morning seminar to hear from CompliSpace’s Principal Consultant, Svetlana Pozydajew, on School Compliance for HR and Privacy: Risks and Best Practice.
During her presentation, Svetlana will discuss:
Human Resources is an area fraught with risk especially if you are not aware of the rules. In addition to the possibility of court action, fines, and reputational damage, a school can lose, or lose the confidence of, good staff, and not be able to easily recruit replacements. Major concerns for schools include:
• How to stay up to date with legal requirements; even if you have policies that cover all of your key HR risks
• How do you ensure that staff know of, and understand, their responsibilities and entitlements?
• Do you have a plethora of paper-based forms and policies which are difficult to find and update resulting in administrative staff swamped with questions?
We will look at the essential elements of a compliant and effective HR system in a child safe school context and how this is addressed by the CompliSpace Human Resources Module.
Most schools have been required to comply with the federal Privacy Act since 2014, but the requirement to notify the Privacy Commissioner of certain data breaches has highlighted the need for a school to be sure that its procedures adequately protect personal information.
The “Privacy by Design” approach of the 13 Australian Privacy Principles means that a school should be aware of each element and what needs to be done to comply with the legislation or suffer significant penalties and reputational damage.
We will run through the key elements of the CompliSpace Privacy Module which includes:
• Policies and procedures implementing the APP requirements
• Online training for staff
• Control measures addressing privacy risks in Assurance.
