Protected Disclosures


At Baw Baw Shire, we are committed to the aims and objectives of the Protected Disclosures Act 2012 (the Act). We do not tolerate improper conduct by our employees, officers or members, or any retaliation against anyone who makes a disclosure of improper conduct.

Disclosures of improper conduct or detrimental action by Council, its employees or a person acting on behalf of Council, may be made to:
The Protected Disclosure Coordinator

A disclosure about improper conduct or detrimental action by Council or its employees may also be made directly to the Independent Broad-based Anti-Corruption Commission (IBAC). You can make a disclosure to IBAC in person, in writing, by telephone or by email. Details on making a disclosure to the IBAC are available from their website or by calling 1300 735 135.
