What do I tell the complainant after a misconduct investigation?
How much information do I need to give to the complainant – the person who lodged the complaint – about the outcome of a misconduct investigation?
In the private sector, there are no rules about this. However, we suggest the complainant is:
- told the investigation has concluded;
- given a summary of the findings;
- informed of any actions that directly impact on them; and
- told to report any victimisation that occurs due to them making a complaint.
We do not recommend telling the complainant any disciplinary action that is taken against the alleged perpetrator due to confidentiality reasons.
