This is a reminder to complete the PSA survey for the Parliamentary Inquiry. The survey closing date has been extended to midnight on Thursday 27 July.
The Inquiry is a rare opportunity for you to let parliament know how you feel about your working conditions.
It will focus on the problems of bullying, harassment and discrimination. The scope of the Inquiry includes the effectiveness of the employers’ protocols and procedures to prevent bullying, harassment and discrimination and resolve reports of bullying, harassment and discrimination.
Other issues to be examined include staff care for workers exposed to trauma, and staff care for workers reporting bullying, harassment and discrimination.
