Whistleblower Form

Cancer Council Queensland is committed to operating legally, properly and ethically and will protect and respect the rights of Whistleblowers.

This form is the Whistleblower Form for the purpose of making a Misconduct Disclosure to Cancer Council Queensland pursuant to the Cancer Council Queensland Whistleblower Guideline and Procedure. Please refer to those documents for definitions and further information including how to determine whether you are a “Whistleblower” and whether your intended disclosure is a “Misconduct Disclosure”. In contemplating the use of this form please consider whether your concerns relate to a work-related grievance and may be more appropriately raised under Cancer Council Queensland’s Workplace Policy or Grievance Guideline.

Eligible Whistleblowers are eligible for protections when they make Protected Disclosures under the Corporations Act. If you are an Eligible Whistleblower making a Protected Disclosure, we will not reveal your identity or the contents of your report to others unless you consent to us doing so or we are required or authorised by law to do so.

The online form takes about 10-15 minutes to complete and you must complete it in one session. You can’t save the form.

You can upload attachments to support your disclosure. The maximum size of an attachment is 10MB.

If a Misconduct Disclosure is trivial, or unfounded allegations are made maliciously or when they are known to be false this may be viewed seriously, and the Whistleblower may be subject to disciplinary action.

Once you submit your report, a confirmation screen will display your Reference Number. If you supplied your email address, we will send you a confirmation email including a PDF copy of your report and your Reference Number. The report will then be sent automatically to Cancer Council Queensland’s Whistleblower Officer (the Chief Financial Officer). If the CFO’s name is included as an involved individual at question 1 then the report will instead be sent to the General Manager, People (Employment and Volunteering), the Chief Executive Officer or the Chair of the Board (as appropriate depending on whether any of those individuals are involved).

A Cancer Council Queensland representative will contact you to discuss your report as soon as reasonably practicable after submission.

If the Human Rights Act 2019 (Qld) applies to a service that you have received from us (i.e. certain services that CCQ provides pursuant to contracts with the Queensland government) and your report relates to a Serious Breach of your human rights, please let us know and we will respond within 45 business days. If you are not satisfied with our response after this time, you can complain to the Queensland Human Rights Commission (see www.qhrc.qld.gov.au).
