2.5 The DirectConnect phone system delivering sales leads will record all calls. To comply with General Employment laws you are required to notify your staff that these incoming phone calls may be monitored and recorded.

Please note that the federal Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Act 1979 (“TIA”) contains a prohibition on the interception of calls. If a telephone call is to be monitored or recorded, all parties to the conversation must have actual knowledge that the monitoring/ recording is taking place. However, the TIA does not require the parties to the conversation to consent to the monitoring/ recording activities.


The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (“OAIC”) instructs organisations that record incoming calls to notify each caller, at the beginning of the conversation, that their call will be recorded. DirectConnect fulfils this obligation to incoming callers.

Callers who do not wish their call to be recorded should have the chance either:
– to end the call before recording commences; or
– to ask to be transferred to another line where recording does not takeplace (if such secondary line is available eg mobile or alternate landline).

The OAIC recognises that organisations may monitor or record conversations
for the following reasons:
– to protect consumers in their dealings with the organisation;
– to provide a record in the event of a dispute about the transaction;
– to improve customer service, for example, via the monitoring, training or coaching of staff who handle telephone calls.

For information, the Communications
Alliance Ltd has prepared the following Guideline to provide assistance in the practical application of the legislation covering listening and recording of communications: G516:2004 – Participant Monitoring of Voice Communications.
