Connecting with the right support worker is important!  Perhaps you connected through friends, another participant, or your own informal support network. Directly employing your own staff is supported by the NDIS, only if you self-manage your NDIS funding.

Things you need to consider when engaging a support worker directly

  • You are engaging the person. Meaning this person is unable to delegate to another person 

  • You as an employer are responsible for a range of obligations under various legislation's such as superannuation, worker’s compensation and safety within the workplace

  • Engaging a person with an ABN does not mean you don’t have obligations   

  • Note of caution: Support workers that hold ABN's are acceptable to engage, however majority are deemed employees, and are entitled to superannuation and protection whilst in the workplace   

It is essential that you do your own due diligence, for your situation.  Take the necessary steps to avoid committing an offence.  Be in control of your situation know your obligation now, not after the fact.

It is not a choice to get it wrong.
