Code of Conduct (Employees)

The Shire of Derby / West Kimberley’s (the Shire’s) Code of Conduct (the Code) provides employees with clear guidelines for the standards of professional conduct expected of them in carrying out their functions and responsibilities.

The Code addresses the broader issue of ethical responsibility and encourages transparency and accountability. The Code expresses the Shire’s commitment to high standards of ethical and professional behaviour and outlines the principles in which individual responsibilities are based.

The Code is complementary to the principles adopted in the Local Government Act 1995 (the Act) and associated regulations, which incorporate four fundamental aims:

  1. Better decision-making by local governments;
  2. Greater community participation in the decisions and affairs of local governments;
  3. Greater accountability of local governments to their communities; and
  4. More efficient and effective local government.
