Financial support payments are available to assist employers to release staff by way of backfill payments and to assist students to attend a DV-alert 2-Day workshop if travel and accommodation are required in regional and remote areas.
Any employer with staff successfully enrolled to attend a DV-alert 2-Day workshop are eligible for Financial Assistance and can claim locum payments in cases where the employer must backfill their attendee's position.

In order to claim locum payment, an employer must complete and sign Section 4 – Employer Locum Support of the DV-alert Financial Assistance Application Form, attach appropriate evidence and submit an organisation invoice to make a claim.
