The Fair Work (Registered Organisations Act) 2009 requires that disclosures reported to the Commission must be investigated unless:
- the information does not concern disclosable conduct
- the disclosure is frivolous or vexatious
- the whistleblower has informed the investigator that they do not want the investigation to be pursued and the investigator is satisfied that there is nothing that warrants investigation
- the information is being, or has been, dealt with adequately in another way.
If concerns are reported directly to a registered organisation, it should look into those concerns and address them.
