Our complaints process
When we receive your complaint, we'll do our best to resolve the issue or issues when we first contact you. If we can't resolve the matter then, it will be escalated within our internal complaints handling process.
- First level resolution Our frontline staff and subject matter experts are dedicated to providing you with a response
- Escalated level If you are not satisfied with the outcome of your complaint you have the option to have your complaint referred to our Dispute Resolution Advisory Team.
- Remain dissatisfied If you are still dissatisfied after working with the Dispute Resolution Advisory team, you may escalate externally to the Energy and Water Ombudsman Queensland.
Your complaints will be directed to the appropriate subject matter expert within the business, who will acknowledge receipt of the complaint with you and will advise you of a unique identifying number for your reference. Every effort will be made to achieve a resolution which is satisfactory for both you and us within five business days or within a timeframe to which we both agree.
If, after we provide a resolution for you, you are not satisfied that the outcome is equitable or that we have not done everything in our power to deliver a fair outcome, you may request escalation of the matter to our internal Dispute Resolution Advisory Team. This team will investigate the matter further and propose possible alternative options.
All complaints are treated confidentially and in accordance with our Privacy Statement.
