Having an Information Technology and Confidentiality Policy in place means Employers and Employees are on the same page about their rights and responsibilities for using company IT facilities, and dealing with confidential information.
The IT Policy covers how the Company may operate and monitor IT Facilities; and what constitutes appropriate use by staff. It also covers the security of IT Facilities and Confidential Information and monitoring of IT Facilities if applicable.
Unlike some policies, the core obligations of the IT & Confidentiality Policy are contained in the Relevant Legislation, and not decided by the company.
The BAL IT & Confidentiality Policy covers topics relevant to the following Federal laws:
- Copyright Act 1968

- Crimes Act 1914
- Commonwealth and Territory legislation listed in the Bullying, Harassment &
- Discrimination Policy
- Privacy Act 1988
- Crimes Act 1900
