Code of conduct

The Queensland Public Service Code of Conduct establishes the ethical standards of conduct and behaviour expected of public service staff when working with each other, with other agencies and when serving members of the community.

The Department of Justice and Attorney-General (DJAG) is committed to building, maintaining and ensuring a continuous improvement in functioning and integrity within the Department.

Members of the public are encouraged to report any suspected misconduct by a DJAG employee:

  • Misconduct is inappropriate or improper conduct in an official capacity or inappropriate conduct in a private capacity that reflects seriously and adversely on the Queensland public service.
  • Official misconduct is any inappropriate conduct by a public official that is related to the performance of their duties and amounts to a criminal offence or would warrant dismissal.

To report any suspected misconduct, please complete the online complaints form and the matter will be referred to the appropriate business unit.
