Your privacy

IBAC handles your information and personal details carefully and confidentially.

If you make a genuine complaint:

  • we will not share your name or other personal details with anyone
  • you cannot be fired, disciplined or bullied for making a complaint
  • you are protected from legal actions such as defamation and civil liability
  • your friends, family or colleagues will also be protected.

If your complaint is deemed a protected disclosure, your matter is subject to greater protections and restrictions.

If you are very concerned about your privacy, you can request further protections:


Your personal information will be kept confidential with IBAC, even if we refer your complaint to another agency to investigate.


If you choose to make a complaint anonymously, our investigation will be limited. This is because we cannot contact you for more information, or discuss with you if you follow up on it.

Legal protections when making a complaint

IBAC may decide your complaint is a protected disclosure (or whistleblower complaint), meaning your matter is subject to greater protections and restrictions.

Anyone can complain to us about public sector corruption and police misconduct. Find out how.
