The PID Act aims to ensure openness and accountability in government by encouraging people to make disclosures - or whistleblowing - and protecting them when they do.
 
The PID Act enables people to make disclosures about wrongdoing within the State public sector, local government and public universities without fear of reprisal. As a PID Officer, you have a number of key roles and responsibilities to your public authority and to anyone considering making a disclosure. This course will give you the knowledge to assist and access to resources to help you undertake your role with confidence.
 
Navigating the PID Act
 
If you are a PID Officer, this session is a must. Along with PID Officers, if you manage or supervise people in your workplace you are encouraged to attend this course.
 
The session will cover:
  • A walk through key sections of the Public Interest Disclosure Act 2003
  • Your role and responsibilities as a PID Officer
  • Your role as a manager when a disclosure has been made
  • How you can build awareness of public interest disclosures within your public authority
However, this is not a course on how to investigate a public interest disclosure.
