Speak Up and support ethical behaviour

RBF is pleased to participate in the Integrity Commission's Speak Up program.

Speak Up encourages all workers to help identify and eradicate misconduct within our organisation and help create a more efficient workplace where ethical standards are followed.

The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2002 provides statutory protections and procedures for people who speak up, especially about serious or significant improper behaviour, including illegal, corrupt, dangerous and other kinds of misconduct.

More information about the Speak Up program is available on the Integrity Commission's website.
