Employee concerns about improper conduct

69. The Commission relies on you to inform us if you believe that you are being asked or required to act in a way which:

  • is illegal, improper, or unethical
  • is in breach of a professional code
  • may involve possible maladministration, fraud or misuse of public funds
  • is otherwise inconsistent with this Code.

70. You must also draw attention to cases where:

  • there is evidence of criminal or unlawful activity by others
  • you believe there is evidence of irregular or improper behaviour elsewhere in the organisation
  • you are required to act in a way which, for you, raises a fundamental issue of conscience.

71. You should either raise the matter through your manager or approach, in confidence, the Chief Executive or a Commissioner.

72. If you have reported a matter as above, but believe that the response you have received does not represent a reasonable response to your concern, you may report the matter in writing to a Director at the Department of Culture Media and Sport who will investigate the matter further.

73. In accordance with the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 (opens in new tab), the Commission has put in place arrangements which allow you to raise any concerns in confidence and with a guarantee that the matters will be properly investigated, without damage to you. The Commission’s Public interest disclosure policy is set out in Appendix 4.
