Gymnastics Australia – Supplementary Complaints Management Process
Gymnastics Australia in partnership with Sport Integrity Australia and the National Sports Tribunal has developed a temporary, independent process for handling all individual complaints related to misconduct, bullying, abuse, sexual harassment and assault toward an athlete.
This process has been designed to supplement our current Member Protection and Child Safe Policies and provide an avenue for athletes who share their experiences with the Australian Human Rights Review to make a formal complaint should they choose.
Complaints can be submitted to this process from today up until 10 January 2021.
Through this temporary process, Gymnastics Australia, State and Territory Member Associations and all Clubs must transfer the responsibility of handling relevant complaints to an Independent Assessor, Sport Integrity Australia and the National Sports Tribunal (see below for more details).
These independent organisations will be responsible for managing all discretionary aspects of the complaint handling process, including determining and recommending disciplinary action, where appropriate.
If Gymnastics Australia, a State or Territory Association, a Club and/or any individuals working within these organisations does not refer relevant complaints to this temporary process, they will be in breach of the Supplementary Complaints Management Policy .
