NEWSLETTER: Victorian Public Sector – Issue 121

5 May 2022


Welcome to our latest issue of our Victoria Public Sector Newsletter.

Victoria’s Commission for Children and Young People has released resources to help organisations implement new Child Safe Standards that come into effect on July 1, 2022. The new standards are in line with recommendations from a State Government review of the Standards that followed Royal Commissions into child abuse and neglect.

As Victoria’s hospitality sector reopens with the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, the Victorian Gaming and Casino Control Commission has urged gaming venues to be aware of laws that restrict gaming machine advertising. The Commission has also reminded pubs and clubs with gaming machines to be on the lookout for suspicious activity and their obligations around Suspicious Matter Reports.

The President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Chris Maxwell, who has been in the role for 17 years, has retired. We congratulate and thank him for his service to the court and the people of Victoria.
