What happens after you have made your report

Your report to the Inappropriate Workplace Behaviour Line will be forwarded to the Designated Officer at the University within one business day of its receipt.

The Designated Officer at the University decides on next steps, in accordance with the University’s policies and procedures. Depending on the nature of the matter reported, next steps may include a preliminary assessment, mediation, formal investigation and determination and/or efforts to resolve workplace conflict. The timeframe for resolving concerns can vary significantly, as it depends on the complexity of the case, the availability of the participants, and other factors.

If you have chosen to identify yourself when making the report, you may be contacted by the University, involved in the process and informed of outcomes.


How your information is treated once a report is made

The information you provide to the Inappropriate Workplace Behaviour Line will be treated as strictly confidential and handled in accordance with the information on this website and Worklogic’s privacy policy. Our expert team is well trained in reports-handling and workplace relations. We also apply the highest standards of data security and record-keeping. All online reports are kept in a secure database, and all hardcopy documents that we receive are kept in a locked cabinet. In accordance with good business practice, we keep files for seven years after the file is closed, and then destroy the file (using secure document shredding) unless we assess that there is a legal reason to keep that record for a longer period of time.

Once the information is forwarded to the Designated Officer at the University, it will be used by authorised personnel at the University for the purpose for which it was collected, and will be protected against unauthorised access and use. Where necessary, the information may be made available to external bodies tasked with enforcing compliance with legislation and the law. You may access any personal information you have provided to the University.

The University is committed to protecting personal information provided by you in accordance with the Privacy and Data Protection Act 2014 (Vic). All information collected by the University is governed by the University’s Privacy Policy: http://policy.unimelb.edu.au/MPF1104. For further information about how the University deals with personal information, please refer to the University’s Privacy Policy or contact the University’s Privacy Officer at privacy-officer@unimelb.edu.au.
