Information for former public servants
Former APS and Parliamentary Service employees have rights of review for:
- a decision that they have breached the Code of Conduct after their public service employment ceased (Division 7.3, Public Service Regulations; Section 48A, Parliamentary Service Act 1999).
- the final entitlements paid (Division 7.3, Public Service Regulations; Division 3, clause 115, Parliamentary Service Determination).
An APS or Parliamentary Service agency can investigate whether or not a former employee has breached the Code of Conduct after they have left the service.
Agencies can ask the Merit Protection Commissioner to inquire into and determine if there has been a breach.
This is undertaken as a fee-for-service Code of Conduct inquiry.
