Protected Disclosures Act

In December 2012 the Victorian Government repealed the Whistleblowers Protection Act 2001, and has enacted the Protected Disclosures Act 2012. This is part of a Victorian Government initiative to increase public sector accountability and integrity through its first anti-corruption body, the Independent Broad Based Anti – Corruption Commission (IBAC).

The Protected Disclosures Act 2012 creates a framework for the reporting of improper conduct by public officers or public bodies. The Act provides protection against detrimental action.

State Trustees is committed to encouraging and facilitating the making of disclosures of improper conduct or detrimental action taken by State Trustees employees, contractors or service providers.

If you want additional information on how to make a protected disclosure, contact the Independent Broad Based Anti- Corruption Commission.
