Protected Disclosures

Federation University Australia is committed to the aims and objectives of the Protected Disclosure Act 2012 (the Act).  It does not tolerate improper conduct by its employees, officers or members, nor the taking of reprisals against those who come forward to disclose such conduct.

The University recognises the value of transparency and accountability in its administrative and management practices, and supports the making of disclosures that reveal improper conduct (which is defined in section 4 of the Act to include corrupt conduct, conduct involving a substantial mismanagement of public resources, and conduct involving a substantial risk to public health and safety or the environment).

The University will take all reasonable steps to protect people who make such disclosures from any detrimental action in reprisal for making the disclosure.
