Behaving Ethically

All NSW government sector employees are required to behave in ways that are ethical, lawful and build trust in the sector. This means acting in ways that demonstrate the government sector core values of Integrity, Trust, Service and Accountability.

Behaving Ethically is the key central source of legislation, policy and practical resources to assist government sector agencies to develop ethical cultures, leadership and workplace practices, and to assist employees to demonstrate ethical conduct.
