Public Interest Disclosure Act

On Wednesday 15 January 2014, the Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013 (PID Act) commenced. On the same day the Whistleblowing provisions under the Public Service Act 1999 were repealed.

The PID Act is the new legislative scheme for the reporting and investigation of allegations of serious wrongdoing in the Commonwealth public sector. It:

  • removes barriers that prevent people who work, or previously worked in the public sector from speaking up about serious problems that impact on public administration
  • ensures that reports of wrongdoing are properly investigated and dealt with
  • provides protection to public officials who report allegations of wrongdoing under the PID Act.
