Office of Industrial Relations Right to information

Right to information (RTI) is the Queensland Government's approach to giving the community greater access to information, equal access across all sectors of the community, and appropriate protection for individuals' privacy. An individual has the right to request any information held by an agency and any documents containing their personal information.

The government will provide access to information it holds, unless it is not in the public interest to do so.

For more information about your RTI rights, visit the Queensland Government website.
