Protected Disclosure Act

Maroondah City Council has a process in place to accept information under the Protected Disclosure Act, allowing for the disclosure of corrupt or improper conduct and providing protection to people who provide this information. 

The Protected Disclosure Act replaced the Whistleblowers Protection Act on 10 February 2013. The Independent Broad-based Anti-Corruption Commission (IBAC) was also established at this time as part of a new integrity system for Victoria.

The Act applies to all Victorian public bodies and public officers including:

  • Government departments and agencies
  • Statutory authorities
  • Universities and hospitals
  • Councillors and Council staff
  • Members of the Victorian Police Force
  • Members of Victorian Parliament

Who can make a disclosure? 

Any person can make a disclosure if they have reasonable grounds to believe that improper or corrupt conduct has occurred.
