Explanation of this guide and fact sheets

This guide is composed of a series of fact sheets that together set out good practice on managing allegations of misconduct in the Tasmanian public sector.

The fact sheets can be used together as a whole of process guide. They can also be used individually where assistance is needed on a particular issue.

The fact sheets are divided into three sections to align with the three stages of dealing with misconduct.

The three stages are:

  1. Allegation or suspicion
  2. Investigation
  3. Outcomes

Although the fact sheets are in rough chronological order, some are relevant to the whole process. Where a topic is discussed in another fact sheet, this is indicated by the symbol [FS#], which will show the relevant fact sheet number.

Definitions of key words and a list of references with more detailed information are in [FS26].
