Report Serious Misconduct

Council has a responsibility to prevent serious wrongdoing and misconduct. The Public Interest Disclosures Act 1994 (PID Act)sets in place a system to encourage public officials to report serious wrongdoing.

Council supports this by establishing and maintaining a working environment that encourages public officials to report wrongdoing and that supports them when they do. This includes keeping the identity of reporters confidential where practical and appropriate and taking steps to protect reporters from reprisal and manage workplace conflict.

Council's Public Interest Disclosure Policy outlines how a report can be made and what should be reported.  It also outlines how a report will be dealt with by the Council.

A public official wishing to report corrupt conduct, maladministration, serious and substantial waste of public money, breach of the GIPA Act or a local government pecuniary interest contravention to the Council is encouraged to use the Public Interest Reporting Form(PDF, 107KB).
