Confidentiality

The NSW Protected Disclosures Act makes it incumbent upon the University not to disclose information that might identify a complainant. Basically, the Protected Disclosures Act supports a member where reprisal action could be or has been taken against them in direct response to having made an allegation.

The University makes every effort to ensure the confidentiality of information that might identify the person making the allegation.

If there is any need to release information that might identify the person making the allegation, it will be discussed firstly with this person.

Confidentiality of information supplied by a witness in an investigation is similarly applied.

The University equally makes every effort to ensure the confidentiality of the person who is the subject of the allegation whilst the investigation occurs.
