On 18 March this year, Victoria joined the other Australian states bypassing the Spent Convictions Bill 2020. This means that eligible convictions will finally disappear from Victorians’ police checks after a certain period, leaving them free from the burden of ancient mistakes when applying for jobs, volunteering, housing, or education.
APSU invites you to join our community forum:
Footloose and Fancy Free – Victoria’s Spent Convictions Bill 2020
When: Tuesday, 1 June, from 6pm
Where: Gordon Storey Memorial Hall – SHARC 140 Grange Road Carnegie
This forum is an opportunity to find out more about what this bill means in general and for you specifically.
Calum Henderson, Barrister, will tell us about the history of this bill, how it played out in the other states, and how it applies in practice (types of offences, process etc).
Audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions about their specific circumstances.
Light refreshments will be provided.
Given the social distancing requirements, there are fewer spots available than normal. Be sure to RSVP to reserve your spot.
