Report an issue anonymously

Know someone who's not getting a fair go? Heard of a business or organisation that isn't playing by the rules? We can help you resolve the issue or you can share your information with us anonymously.

Most employers and employees try to follow workplace laws. Sometimes honest mistakes are made. Occasionally businesses or employees deliberately break the law to try and get a competitive advantage. This is unfair to: 

  • employees who are underpaid or disadvantaged
  • employers who are following the law and trying to compete with businesses who are underpaying their staff.

Want to report illegal phoenix activity? Illegal phoenix activity is when an employer deliberately liquidates their business and starts a new company to avoid paying debts such as taxes and employee entitlements.

If you suspect illegal phoenix activity, you can report it confidentially to the ATO’s dedicated Phoenix Hotline. Go to the Australian Taxation Office's illegal phoenix activity page external-icon.png for more information about how to contact the Hotline by phone, email or online.
