Whistleblower's response to allegations: Please read bottom two documents first.
In the file note above are the types of allegations a Whistleblower can expect to have made against them.
Just click on the document to view the complaints.
These allegations had no other substance: no times - no dates - no proof. The Whistleblower had to seek legal advice on the matter to protect her employment. After many weeks of distress for the Whistleblower - these serious allegations were withdrawn.
Has the Whistleblower received an apology from all complainants concerned in this file note? NO!
Has the Whistleblower been given any more details of the allegations? NO!
Was there ever any truth in any of the allegations? NO!
Was the Whistleblower ever informed that there were any issues to address? NO!
Did these allegations take almost two months to surface? YES!
Does the Whistleblower have proof that Senior management encouraged these complainants to make these allegations against her? YES!
The Whistleblower is now in the process of making a complaint to the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission against Eventide management and Queensland Health for their mishandling of these trumped up complaints.
The primary complainant now receives - as a reward - set days off. This is contrary to the Award and the Certified Agreement.
Another Whistleblower (Casual) has had similar accusations made against her by unnamed complainants. Since her disclosure to management of sexual, psychological and physical abuse of aged care residents by a staff member, she has received no further work at Eventide. Her story will be published very shortly.
Watch this space for more evidence of trumped up charges. One complaint was actually noted that the Whistleblower was guilty of the alleged habit of "Slurping her beverages loudly". Now that should warrant a criminal offence charge.
Learn just how easy it is to defame and discredit a genuine Whistleblower.
When Whistleblowers are directed to show - cause, they will not be able to bring any witnesses who may have proof of their innocence. They will not be able to have present, anyone who may have evidence of any kind. They will not be able to bring more than one support person to any meeting. They will be investigated by private companies provided for at the tax payers expense, with terms of reference deliberately so narrow that they will not be able to defend themselves. If they are public sector aged care employees, the Crime and Misconduct Commission will almost certainly refer their Public Interest Disclosure back to Queensland Health to investigate. If they receive threatening legal letters, they will usually be given 14days in which to respond; never mind that the employer can delay an investigation for many months or years if they so choose.
Unscrupulous people who make up serious allegations against the Whistleblower - will never be held to account - even when they withdraw the allegations. In fact, some will be rewarded by management for their input. This may be in the form of remuneration by roster manipulation, choice of set days off, increasing hours, receiving overtime etc.
BUT SOMETIMES MINISTER, WHISTLEBLOWERS FIGHT BACK.
