Conducting Corruption and Misconduct Investigations – Covering All the Bases


Get in touch information is loading


The recent changes to the jurisdiction of the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) mean that while the CCC has oversight responsibility for dealing with allegations of corrupt conduct in the public sector, it will be the responsibility of agencies to effectively deal with and investigate allegations of misconduct which are not corrupt conduct.  If they do not, the agency and its senior officers could be exposed to adverse legal and reputational consequences.

This workshop will consider a broad range of alleged misconduct and why agencies must develop sound and robust systems and procedures, including investigatory processes and procedures, to appropriately and comprehensively deal with, and investigate, allegations of alleged misconduct.

You will also get an overview of how to establish sound and robust processes and procedures in dealing with allegations of misconduct, including how to effectively conduct misconduct investigations.
