Please note that Corporate Spectrum does not eliminate any organizations need to be responsible for meeting legislative requirements. Our advice is not intended as legal advice.

Organizations are required to accept final responsibility in respect of all policies, procedures and compliance. Onsite return to work coordinators and OH&S representatives are required by your business internally if appointing our services. This is  despite being able to have more than one rtw co-coordinator and legally being able to employ, in many instances, in this capacity externally. Our agreed hours are limited, our structure is via Ecommerce and whilst many tasks we perform are to support certain  areas overlapping with compliance issues, our structure and scope of services provides that our client base must ensure legislative requirements are adhered to at all times.
