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 different to complaints and do not trigger an investigation by us. However, they are valuable because:
- they help us. We can better understand and monitor misconduct risks in Tasmania, and
- they help you and your public sector organisation. We can, if needed, support you to respond effectively
How to submit a notification
Use our secure online notification form. You are invited to provide as much information as possible, including the name of the person subject to the allegation. Any information you provide will be exempt from the Right to Information Act 2009 (Tas).
We will let you know we have received the notification and will respond again when you inform us of the final outcome of the allegation.
Notifications are treated with the same level of confidentiality and security as complaints. We publish the total number of notifications we receive in our annual report, but generally no further details.
