Complaint monitoring

As part of Liberator’s complaint management responsibilities:

  • all complaints are monitored using a complaint register
  • the complaint register includes up-to-date progress of each complaint and whether it is currently open or closed (resolved)
  • Liberator’s management reviews the complaint register in each of its regular meetings.

Complaint records and review

Accurate information of complaints received including decisions made, actions taken and eventual outcomes are kept for 7 years from the date of the complaint, which allows us to:

  • enable reviews of any complaints received
  • assist in identifying any systemic issues raised
  • allow a response to the Commissioner, if required
  • be stored securely and accessible only by the people handling complaints.
