Queensland Rail is committed to ensuring that the highest level of integrity and ethical standards are applied in all our business interactions and does not tolerate corrupt conduct, fraudulent activities or maladministration.
Employees are expected to conduct business activities within the legislative guidelines, organisational standards and not engage in fraudulent activities or corrupt conduct that will be contrary to Queensland Rail's Values and Code of Conduct.
Queensland Rail is committed to minimising the incidence of fraud and corruption through the identification of risk and the development, implementation and regular review of a range of preventative and detective strategies. Queensland Rail will take appropriate action against those who perpetrate fraud or engage in corrupt conduct against the organisation.
Queensland Rail will protect those individuals including staff, visitors, volunteers and contractors who provide information on suspected fraudulent and corrupt activities.
