Public Interest and Whistleblower Disclosures

The University Vision and associated Values are indicative of the importance the University places on ethical behaviour.  The University does not tolerate corrupt or other improper conduct, including the mismanagement of University resources by staff, in the exercise of the public functions of the University.

The University is committed to the aims and objectives of the Public Interest Disclosure Act 2003 (WA) (PID Act) and the relevant whistleblower provisions of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) (Corporations Act).

The University strongly supports disclosures being made by employees, contractors and members of the community about corrupt or other improper conduct. The University does not tolerate any of its employees, contractors or subcontractors taking reprisal action against anyone who makes or proposes to make a disclosure. The University will take all reasonable steps to protect employees from any detrimental action in reprisal for the making of a disclosure.

The University's Public Interest Disclosure and Whistleblower Protection Discloser Guidelines outline how the University meets its obligations under the PID Act and the Corporations Act and provide guidance to potential disclosers when they are considering making a disclosure under the provisions of the legislation.

The University has appointed delegated staff members to act as the University’s authorised officers to receive disclosures under the provisions of the PID Act and the Corporations Act.
