Public Interest Disclosures (Whistleblower) Policy

Tasracing is committed to establishing and maintaining appropriate policies and guidelines to ensure good corporate governance and compliance with legislative obligations.

The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2002 (Tas) provides protection to a person who makes disclosures in accordance with that Act.  The Act aims to:

  • encourage and facilitate disclosures of improper conduct;
  • protect persons making those disclosures, and others, from reprisals or discrimination;
  • provide for the matters disclosed to be properly investigated and dealt with; and
  • provide all parties involved in the disclosures with natural justice.

This is consistent with Tasracing’s culture of encouraging ethical and honest behaviour.

We will provide a safe and confidential environment to all persons who make protected disclosures of improper conduct or detrimental action by Tasracing, its members, officers or employees.  We will also ensure all disclosures are investigated in a fair, thorough and timely manner.

Tasracing has adopted the Ombudsman’s recommended Model Public Interest Disclosure procedures, which was approved by the Ombudsman on 15 August 2016.   A copy of this is document is available here [PDF].

Tasracing recognises the value of transparency and accountability and supports disclosures that reveal improper conduct.
