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:

Under paragraph 11(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.

The information on this Web site will be updated to provide public access to information on founded wrongdoing under the PSDPA.
