Complaints made by public servants or public officers
The Public Interest Disclosures Act 1994 (PID Act) provides that public servants officials who wish to report serious wrong doing in public sector agencies can do so on a confidential basis. Under the PID Act complaints or allegations made by public servants or public officials are called disclosures. The PID Act also provides for such persons to be protected against reprisals for making such disclosures.

The Inspector cannot deal with complaints of wrongdoing by officers of any other agency.
