Those that don’t may get an infringement from the Department of Education, Skills and Employment. An infringement is a fine, like a parking ticket. They help providers avoid more severe penalties.

The Department of Education, Skills and Employment issues infringements to providers that don’t follow the rules under Family Assistance Law. An infringement is a fine, like a parking ticket. Infringements help providers avoid more severe penalties. They allow a provider to pay a small fine rather than go to court, where they may get a much larger penalty.
