Australian National Police Checks

Perform Australian police checks with a one-step application process for faster turnaround times

An Australian police check is becoming one of the most important tools an organisation can use to protect against theft and fraud. Transparency at the right time can help you formulate a view of an individual’s risk profile, and their fit within your organisation.

Trusted by thousands of companies, WorkPro’s superior national police check program enables you to hire confidently!

The Game Changer

The game changer for you however, is WorkPro’s smart integration with the Department of Home Affairs Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO) database. The provision of consent for a police check today includes four forms of identification. One of these is a commencement of identity document. For non-Australian citizens who cannot easily produce a birth certificate, a work rights check using the Department’s VEVO database is the only option.

This presents an issue, as the person needs to find their way to another database to gain this information, and then upload the result to be able to move to Stage 2 of the application process. Not so if your organisation is using WorkPro! WorkPro offers secure, seamless and integrated access to the database during the candidate application process, so they can instantly gain a result and upload the outcome as part of the application.

The function includes full disclosure, a formal certificate and an automatic alert if a work right changes. Additionally, this function and service is complimentary for all police check customers as part of every police check.

Don’t use a range of platforms when you can use one. Save time and resources and join the companies who submit more than 50,000 national police checks annually with WorkPro.

Why should employers use national police checks?

Bad hiring decisions are costing Australian businesses up to $8.5 billion in theft, fraud, bad culture fits and other financial losses. That does not include the resources needed to recruit, onboard and train replacement staff when things go wrong.

A national police check is the number one step in the recruiting process for smart employers to mitigate risk and protect themselves against these burdens. For some industries, an Australian national police check is a requirement for individuals to legally work in a chosen field.
But while background checks are essential for good risk management, many employers find themselves with limited resources and time. Managing the paperwork and large number of accounts needed for background checking can be time-consuming and expensive.

Introducing… WorkPro

The WorkPro platform has been designed for ease of workflow. It offers one simple place to order, track and manage national police checks and more all from one powerful dashboard. Flexible pricing in arrears and volume pricing starting from just $44.00 per check makes background checks easy and affordable for everyone – how it should be.

WorkPro makes Australian police checks simple for employers, so they can always make quicker, smarter decisions with confidence.

In today’s employment environment, business is very structured, with a growing focus on meeting and administering a range of mandatory legal requirements. Many of these occur prior to a person commencing on day one!
