Ethics and Other Policies

Ethics

"Public service is a public trust. Each employee has a responsibility to the United States Government and its citizens to place loyalty to the Constitution, laws and ethical principles above private gain." These are the opening lines of the "Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Executive Branch."​

Federal employees should behave at all times in a way that encourages the public's confidence and faith in civil service. The following resources provide guidance on ethical behavior in key work-related situations.​

To learn more, see United States Office of Government Ethics - Federal Employee Resources.​

Equal Employment Opportunity Laws

The Federal Government is an equal opportunity employer. Discrimination in any aspect of employment (such as recruitment, hiring, promotion, compensation, training, and firing) is illegal.
