Preparing your complaint

Before you submit your complaint, we ask that you:

  1. Check that your complaint is relevant to our functions.
    • We can only accept complaints about the conduct of public officers (employees of public sector organisations). This includes employees of state government departments and government business enterprises, police officers, members of parliament, employees of the University of Tasmania, and elected members and employees of councils.
  2. Ensure that your complaint is made in good faith.
    • Submit your complaint in good faith with the belief that it is true. It is an offence to make a false complaint to the Integrity Commission.
  3. Consider giving us your details.
    • While we accept anonymous complaints, we do encourage you to provide your contact details.
    • If you provide your contact details we can contact you to obtain further information, and tell you about the outcome of your complaint. It can be difficult to assess or investigate an anonymous complaint.
    • If you choose, we can ensure that your contact details are not given to other organisations if your complaint is sent to them for action.

Submitting your complaint

Please provide as much detail as you can. Provide copies of any documents to support your complaint.

The Commission manages your personal information carefully and in accordance with relevant legislation.
