Protected disclosure

The Protected Disclosure Act 2012 (the Act) encourages and facilitates making disclosures of improper conduct by public bodies or public sector employees, and protects persons who make those disclosures.

Cenitex is committed to the aims and objectives of the Act. It does not tolerate improper conduct by its employees, officers or members, nor the taking of reprisals against those who come forward to disclose such conduct.

Cenitex recognises the value of transparency and accountability in its administrative and management practices, and supports the making of disclosures that reveal corrupt conduct, conduct involving a substantial mismanagement of public resources, or conduct involving a substantial risk to public health and safety or the environment.

Cenitex will take all reasonable steps to protect people who make such disclosures from any detrimental action in reprisal for making the disclosure. It will also afford natural justice to the person who is the subject of the disclosure.

Cenitex is required to establish and publish procedures under the Act and in accordance with the guidelines of the Independent Broad-based Anti-Corruption Commission (IBAC).  Under the Act Cenitex is required to ensure these procedures are readily available to members of the public, as well as internally to all Cenitex employees.

These Cenitex protected disclosure procedures provide you with all information relating to the making and handling of protected disclosures and the application of the Protected Disclosure Act 2012.
