Our policy framework includes and is supported by our Whistleblowing Policy (PDF, 291KB) and process. Our whistleblowing process provides an avenue for anyone to report suspected unethical, illegal or improper conduct, including about misconduct or an improper state of affairs. It is supported by an independent service provider and all disclosures are treated confidentially and can be made anonymously. For easy reference, we’ve created a short quick guide on the whistleblowing policy (PDF, 166KB), and further information regarding whistleblowing at Telstra is provided at www.telstra.ethicspoint.com.
We apply the Australian Board of Taxation’s Voluntary Tax Transparency Code, and the recommended disclosures are provided here and in Note 2.4 of the Financial Statements in our Annual Reports.
