Office of Industrial Relations privacy

We're committed to protecting your privacy. Like other Queensland Government agencies, we're required to comply with 11 Information Privacy Principles (IPPs) contained in the Information Privacy Act 2009. These IPPs set out how personal information must be collected and managed in the public sector environment.

We collect and manage your personal information as described on this web page, unless stated otherwise. 'Personal information' may include your name, address, phone number, email address, age, gender, your employer, and your position title.

We may ask you to provide personal information through this website. We'll only do this:

  • to meet our needs – for example, demographic analysis
  • if required by law.

Use and disclosure of personal information

We won't add you to a mailing list, or give your personal information to third parties without your consent, unless required by law.


Our privacy principles apply to emails as well.

Our internet service provider or information technology staff may monitor email traffic for system trouble shooting and maintenance purposes only.
