Public Interest Disclosure

What is a Public Interest Disclosure?

Public Interest Disclosures (PID) also referred to as 'whistleblowing', is the reporting of improper conduct within local government, state public sector and public universities.

A disclosure is not just a general complaint. It must relate to something that affects the rights, health or finances of the public; and must show serious wrong doing by a public authority, staff member or contractor when performing their job.

Disclosures can be made about a number of serious issues, including corruption, misuse of public resources, dishonest administration, or danger to public health and safety.
