This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Samantha Blanchard to read recent responses and update the status.
From: Samantha Blanchard
Dear Airservices Australia FOI,
I am requesting a copy of the final investigation report conducted by external investigator, Andrew Hedges relating to Airservices Australia where a complaint was made by myself, an employee of ASA, about Airservices Management re: bullying, harassment, and breaches of the code of conduct. This report was completed in October 2018.
I have tried all internal ASA avenues to obtain the above document but have not been successful in obtaining the documents.
Could you please advise if there is a cost relating to this application as it is about me and my employment with ASA so respectfully submit that any cost should be waived?
