Making and handling protected disclosures


ESTA encourages employees and the public to report known or suspected incidents of corrupt or improper conduct.

ESTA will take all reasonable steps to protect people who make such disclosures from any detrimental action in reprisal for making the disclosure.  It will also afford natural justice to the person who is the subject of the disclosure.

The Making and handling protected disclosures procedures explain:

  • how to make a disclosure
  • what happens when you make a disclosure
  • the protections and support available to disclosers
  • support available to an employee who is being investigated

If you are considering making a disclosure, read this document first and contact the pdisclosure [at] esta.vic.gov.au (protected disclosures co-ordinator) for further advice.
