Whistle-blower guidelines and procedures

We are committed to the aims and objectives of the Public Interest Disclosures Act 2002. We do not tolerate improper conduct or detrimental action by employees, officers or members, or taking detrimental action against those who come forward to disclose such conduct.

We value transparency and accountability in our administrative and management practices, and support disclosures that reveal conduct that falls short of our standards. We will take all reasonable steps to protect people who make a disclosure from any detrimental action in reprisal, and to protect their welfare. We will also afford natural justice to all parties involved in the investigation of a disclosure.

Please see here for Hydro Tasmania’s Disclosure Policy and our Ombudsman-approved Disclosure Procedures.
