Protected Disclosures – How to make a Protected Disclosure at UC

Reporting “serious wrong-doing” or “whistle-blowing”

UC has a policy on how staff are to report ‘serious wrong-doing’  (as defined by the Protected Disclosures Act 2000) and how those handling a disclosure are to behave. Our policy on this is the Protected Disclosures Act -Internal Procedures and Code of Conduct, which is available via the UC Policy Library.

A protected disclosure offers employees some protection, in certain circumstances, from detrimental actions or consequences of reporting serious wrong-doing .

Any enquiries on the policy can be directed to the Registrar, Jeff Field.

Want to know more about UC’s approach to policy drafting and policy review?

The Metapolicy sets out UC’s policy review and policy development processes and also provides guidance on:

  • the standard of drafting for UCPL documents,
  • tone and style, key questions the document must answer, and
  • drafting conventions used by the Policy Unit when reviewing UCPL documents.

See the UCPL webpages for:

  • What policies are in their review period;
  • What policies have undergone a scheduled review;
  • What policies have been removed from the UC Policy Library web pages, merged with others policies, renamed or relocated elsewhere;
  • What new policies have been added to the UC Policy Library;
  • Policy processes;
  • Policy templates.
