Employees of public entities can disclose wrongdoings that are in the public interest without fear of reprisal. Employees have options about who they can disclose to including a supervisor, a designated officer in their public entity, or the Public Interest Disclosure Commissioner.
Along with the Public Interest Disclosure Commissioner’s authority to investigate wrongdoing disclosures and reprisals, she can provide confidential advice to employees who are considering making a wrongdoing disclosure.
The Public Interest Disclosure Commissioner encourages employees to contact his office for advice prior to making a disclosure.
