What does this mean for my review rights?

If the Merit Protection Commissioner conducts an inquiry and makes a decision you cannot seek review of that decision under the Public Service Act 1999.

There are other review or dispute resolution bodies that have jurisdiction about workplace issues. These include the Fair Work Commission and the Australian Human Rights Commission.

The Merit Protection Commissioner will not make a decision about a sanction. Your agency head decides what sanction, if any, will be imposed.

If you are a non-SES employee, you can apply to the Merit Protection Commissioner for a review of your agency's sanction decision.
