Acceptable behaviour

  • Laws
  • Rules
  • Controls
  • Procedures.

Unacceptable behaviour (grey area)

  • Conflicts of interest
  • Gifts
  • Favours.

Criminal behaviour

  • Fraud
  • Extortion
  • Bribery
  • Corruption.

Nearly everyone bends some rules, some of the time. How far you bend them defines whether you stay within the bounds of acceptable behaviour or move into unacceptable behaviour. There is a grey area between acceptable behaviour and unacceptable behaviour, the acceptance of gifts, services and hospitality can leave our company vulnerable to accusations of unfairness, partiality or deceit, or even unlawful conduct. In principle, you should not accept gifts, benefits or hospitality from any person or organisation that could benefit by influencing you.

There is a fine line between unacceptable and fraudulent behaviour, for example a person's perception of what is acceptable and unacceptable may differ markedly from that of the Australian Tax Office, the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service or an Insurance Company.

If the amounts of omitted tax, under-declared goods or items on an insurance claim were significant this behaviour could be viewed as potentially fraudulent, and when caught that person may be subject to civil and criminal penalties.

Similarly, a person's perception of what is acceptable, unacceptable or fraudulent may differ from that of our company. It is important to clarify the difference.
