An occupational association is a body corporate:
- Representing the interests of persons who are members of the same or related occupational groups, including a professional or trade group; and
- Where membership is limited to members of that occupational group.
Occupational liability is a civil liability, payment of damages or potential lawsuit arising directly or vicariously from anything done or omitted by a member of an occupational association in the performance of their occupation. Please use the contact details below to find out more information.
