Public Interest Disclosure

The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2018 (PID Act) commenced on 1 July 2019, replacing the Whistleblowers Protection Act 1993.

The PID Act strengthens transparency and accountability in government by establishing a scheme that encourages and facilitates the appropriate disclosure of public interest information to certain persons or authorities.  It provides protections for some persons who make an appropriate disclosure of public interest information in accordance with the PID Act and sets out processes for dealing with such disclosures.

An appropriate disclosure of public administration concerning the Legal Profession Conduct Commissioner or one of his employees can be made to one of the Office's Responsible Officers, or to another relevant authority as defined by the PID Act. 

The procedures established by the Commissioner for his office are set out in this document.  The ways in which you can contact one of the office's Responsible Officers are described in that document.
