Protected Disclosure

You are encouraged to report any concerns about any wrongdoing within Shine or any aspect of Health Services.

Under The Protected Disclosures Act 2014 (also know as the ‘Whistleblower’ legalisation), so long as you report what you believe is true and it is done in good faith and not for personal gain you cannot be sued or penalised by your employer.

The Health Act 2007 (Part 14 Protected Disclosures of Information) provides for the protection of employees and members of the public who disclose possible wrongdoing within the health sector.  

The Protections for Persons Reporting Child Abuse Act 1998 provides protection from victimisation and civil liability for people reporting the abuse of children.
