Protected Dislcosure (Whistleblower) Policy  Printer Friendly

At Benalla Rural City we will not tolerate improper conduct of our employees or Councillors, nor the taking of reprisals against those who come forward to disclose such conduct. Employees and members of the public are encouraged to report known or suspected incidences of corrupt conduct, conduct involving substantial mismanagement of public resources or conduct involving a substantial risk to public health and safety or to the environment.


Benalla Rural City Council is committed to transparent and ethical government, and to meeting all of its lawful obligations. Council does not tolerate corrupt or improper conduct by its employees, and Council will fully protect any person who discloses such conduct. Council encourages any member of the public to raise any concerns about possible improper conduct by Council staff.



Under the Protected Disclosure Act 2012 (the Act), Council may receive and process disclosures about improper, dishonest or corrupt conduct by any Council officer, employee or contractor. If you have reason to believe that a Council employee is engaged in or planning to engage in improper or corrupt conduct, please read this page to understand the processes that Council will follow, before you contact Council with your concerns.



If you have evidence or reason to believe that a Councillor is engaged in improper conduct, this cannot be handled by Council, and you must contact the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC) directly. Contact details for the IBAC can be found via this web page: http://www.ibac.vic.gov.au/contact-us
