Welcome to the latest issue of our NSW Public Sector Newsletter.

The NSW Government introduced the Ombudsman Legislation Amendment Bill 2022 into the NSW Parliament to clarify and update laws governing the NSW Ombudsman, one of the state’s independent integrity agencies. The NSW Ombudsman oversees the NSW public sector and investigates complaints regarding most NSW government agencies, local councils and community service providers. Attorney General Mark Speakman said, if passed, the Bill will make 25 amendments to two pieces of legislation governing the functions of the Ombudsman.

The Government has commenced the consultation process to appoint a new Justice of the High Court of Australia. This upcoming appointment will follow the retirement of the Honourable Justice Patrick Keane AC in October 2022 after nine years of outstanding service to the Australian community as a Justice of Australia’s highest court since his appointment in March 2013.
