Public Interest Disclosures

The Protected Disclosure Act 2012 was updated with changes that came into effect on 1 January 2020 and is now called the Public Interest Disclosure Act 2012 (the Act). The Act enables anyone to make a disclosure about improper conduct within the public sector without fear of reprisal and aims to ensure openness and accountability by encouraging people to make disclosures and protecting them when they do. Council can receive disclosures from a staff member or a member of the community. Or disclosures can be made directly to the Independent broad-based anti-corruption commission (IBAC). If a disclosure is about a Councillor it must be made directly to IBAC.
