Why notifications are important
We encourage all public sector organisations to notify us when they receive an allegation of misconduct or undertake a misconduct investigation.
Notifications are valuable because:
- They help us. We can better understand and monitor misconduct risks in Tasmania.
- They help you and your public sector organisation. We can, if needed, support you to respond effectively, and
- they can help demonstrate your organisation's transparency in dealing with misconduct matters.
How to notify the Commission
Notifications should be submitted ideally at two points:
- Initial notification - when you receive misconduct allegations or first commence an investigation
- Final notification - when the matter has been resolved
Please provide as much information as possible, including the name of the person subject to the allegation. For final notifications, please outline the steps your organisation has taken to manage the matter. Any information you provide will be exempt from the Right to Information Act 2009 (Tas). For assistance with this process, please contact us.
After you submit a notification
We will confirm when we receive the notification and may contact you to request further information or offer support. We will respond again when you inform us of the final outcome.
