The City does not tolerate corrupt or other improper conduct.
The City is committed to the aims and objectives of the Public Interest Disclosure Act 2003 (PID Act). The PID Act recognises the value and importance of reporting as a means to identify and address wrongdoing.
We strongly support disclosures being made by employees about corrupt or other improper conduct. We also strongly support contractors and members of the community making disclosures about corrupt or improper conduct.
The City does not tolerate any of its employees, contractors or subcontractors taking reprisal action against anyone who makes or proposes to make a public interest disclosure.
The City will take all reasonable steps to protect employees from any detrimental action in reprisal for the making of a public interest disclosure.
General information about public interest disclosures and how the City will manage a disclosure is available for external clients and members of the community on our website.
While these procedures focus on public interest disclosures, we are committed to dealing with all reports of suspected wrongdoing. We encourage people to report if they witness any such behaviour. The City will consider each matter under the appropriate reporting pathway and make every attempt to protect staff members making reports from any reprisals.
