Search Government Acts of Founded Wrongdoing
The Public Servants Disclosure Protection Act (PSDPA) offers federal public sector employees and other persons a secure and confidential process for the disclosure of serious wrongdoing in the workplace, as well as protection against reprisal.
The PSDPA defines wrongdoing as follows:
- a contravention of any Act of Parliament or of the legislature of a province, or of any regulations made under any such Act;
- a misuse of public funds or a public asset;
- a gross mismanagement;
- a serious breach of a code of conduct;
- an act or omission that creates a substantial and specific danger to the life, health or safety of persons, or to the environment;
- knowingly directing or counselling a person to commit a wrongdoing.
Under paragraph 1(c) of the PSDPA, chief executives shall promptly provide public access to information on founded wrongdoing.
Information to which public access is provided must describe: the wrongdoing, including the identity of the person found to have committed it if necessary in order to describe the wrongdoing adequately; the recommendations, if any, set out in any report made to the chief executive; and any corrective action taken by the chief executive or the reasons why no corrective action was taken.
