Public interest disclosures

We take allegations of improper conduct and corruption seriously.

Everyone has the right to ‘blow the whistle’ if they experience, witness or receive info about corrupt or improper conduct by a public officer or body. You also have the right to protection when doing so.

Formal public interest disclosure protections exist to limit reprisals against whistleblowers. This includes things like intimidation, harassment and poor treatment in your job.

A disclosure about something already in the public domain – for example, in the media – won’t normally be protected.

You can make a confidential public interest disclosure about Service Victoria or our staff by emailing:

Service Victoria Public Interest Disclosure Officer

To make a public interest disclosure by phone you can call the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission on 1300 735 135.

If you want to make a public interest disclosure about another public body or its staff, make it to them directly or to the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (External link) (External link) (External link).
