How to Report Reprisal

While disclosures of wrongdoing can be investigated by your organization, only the Ombudsperson can investigate reprisal complaints under the Public Interest Disclosure Act (PIDA).

If you are a current or former employee of a ministry or office of the legislature, and you have experienced retaliation for reporting wrongdoing, seeking advice about making a report, or cooperating with an investigation under PIDA, you can make a reprisal complaint to the Ombudsperson.

 A reprisal complaint must be in writing.

There are a number of ways you can report a reprisal to us. Please download and complete the Reprisal Complaint form and provide all evidence you have of the reprisal.
