4. Code of Conduct

The department’s attitude to ethical conduct is documented in the Australian Public Service (APS) Code of Conduct and requires all employees to meet the standards of conduct.

The Code of Conduct policy outlines steps to be taken for alleged breaches. The Code and policy also help to identify and address issues associated with behavioural standards that are often integrally linked to performance problems.

Where an employee is found to have breached the Code of Conduct, the Secretary (or the delegate) may decide to take misconduct action.
