Kate McMullan's recommendations for sanctions arising out of contraventions of Public Service Act 1999

We're waiting for Hannah to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Federal Court of Australia,

I request documents under the FOI Act.

In an article in the Australian – Untried lawyers score key positions the following things are noted:

a) the acting assistant commissioner of the Australian Public Service Commission conducted a confidential investigation and found that a female national registrar “did not hold an essential qualification for the position and no reasonable efforts were made throughout the selection process to determine whether she was eligible to be admitted to practice”,
b) In late December 2020, Ms McMullan wrote to Ms Lagos to inform her she had found the recruitment process that led to the court promoting the woman had breached the Public Service Act because “all eligible members of the community were not given a reasonable opportunity to apply to perform the relevant duties.”

Since there was a finding that provisions of the Public Service Act were contravened by people in the Federal Court, I would like access to documents recording recommendations for sanctions for, or sanction applied to, those public servants in the Federal Court of Australia who were found by Ms McMullan to have contravened provisions of the Public Service Act in relation to the promotion of the female national registrar.

Please do not redact the name/s of the person/s held responsible. Please do not redact any recommendations for sanctions, or any sanctions applied.

Please send the documents to me by email.

Yours faithfully,

Hannah
