NEWSLETTER: Victorian Public Sector – Issue 114

15 October 2021

Publications Uncategorized

Integrity is the theme of this fortnight’s newsletter – data and generally.

The Australian Lawyers Alliance has called for federal legislation to protect the integrity of COVID-19 tracing data and the Digital Transformation Agency is calling for feedback on a draft Bill to support the expansion of the Australian Government’s Digital Identity System.

Two of Victoria’s integrity agencies have joined forces for the first time in their histories as IBAC holds public hearings into allegations of corrupt conduct involving former and current MPs.

The Australian Human Rights Commission has marked the International Day of Older Persons with the launch of a new campaign on the warning signs of elder abuse, which is an issue of particular interest to Thomson Geer given our long history running the Bundoora Seniors Rights Clinic.

Finally, the Victorian Bar has launched a revised Code of Conduct encouraging members to report bullying, sexual harassment and discrimination.

On a positive note, as Victoria moves closer to our own “Freedom Day”, the Government has launched a home quarantine trial using facial recognition.

We hope you enjoy this edition of our Victorian Public Sector Newsletter.
