What is a Public Interest Disclosure?
A public interest disclosure is a disclosure about conduct by a public officer which, if proved, would constitute:
- corrupt misconduct
- maladministration that adversely affects a person’s interests in a substantial and specific way
- conduct that may constitute a substantial misuse of public resources
- conduct that may constitute a substantial and specific danger to public health or safety or the environment or to the health or safety of a person with a disability
- reprisal action against a person who has made a public interest disclosure.
USQ recognises that effective management of illegal and unethical practices is largely dependent upon the reporting culture and practices within its organisation.
