Edmund Rice Education Australia (EREA) is committed to providing a supportive environment for any person making a Whistleblower disclosure and will use its best endeavours to ensure that no individual making a Whistleblower disclosure is personally disadvantaged by having made a disclosure in good faith. This includes protection from dismissal or demotion, any form of reprisal including retaliation, harassment or victimisation.

The Guidelines to the Whistleblower Protection Policy outline the process by which EREA captures actual, planned or suspected ‘wrongdoing’ for which a person providing the disclosure considers cannot reasonably be managed through existing internal reporting procedures in the areas of child protection, health and safety, complaints management and internal grievances.

Aquinas College (College) will follow EREA guidelines and protocols.
