Servicing Individuals with Challenging Behaviour Guideline

This Guideline provides information for Providers (jobactive Providers, ParentsNext Providers, New Enterprise Incentive Scheme (NEIS) Providers, Harvest Labour Services (HLS) Providers and Transition to Work (TtW) Providers) on the servicing of individuals with challenging behaviours. It also sets out requirements and provides information for lodging Incident Reports in the Department’s IT system, when servicing individuals with challenging behaviours, as well as information for NEIS Providers and HLS Providers that use manual/paper based processes.

The aim of the policy is to give Providers guidance on how to continue delivering services to individuals with challenging behaviours without risking their staff or property, while ensuring that individuals meet their Mutual Obligation Requirements and remain connected with services. This Guideline also assists Providers to identify and report challenging behaviours that individuals display.

Providers need to adapt the strategies that are outlined here to suit their particular circumstances. This Guideline should supplement, not replace, existing internal operational policies and procedures. Providers are responsible for informing themselves of their legal obligations and taking appropriate measures to comply with obligations.
