Fees for the WWC Check have been reviewed with a small fee increase in line with CPI planned to come into effect on 1 July 2012, the second CPI increase for paid employees since the introduction of the scheme in January 2006 and the first change in fees for volunteers.
In the financial year 2012/13, fees for volunteers will increase from $10.00 to $10.30; fees for paid employees will increase from $51.50 to $53.00; and replacement cards will increase from $10.00 to $10.30.
The fee for a WWC Check will continue to be lower than the fees for similar checks in other states and is heavily subsidised by government. A current WWC Card remains transferable between paid and unpaid work and is valid for three years unless cancelled.
