2014-15 conduct and performance data

As a proportion of the public sector profile, work performance matters represent 1.71% of the Queensland public sector with 0.13% of the workforce reported for the most serious breach of conduct expectations. This is a small number of employees relative to the total public sector workforce and overwhelmingly demonstrates that the majority of public servants are meeting or exceeding standards expected of them.

2014-2015 is the first year this information has been collected and published.


The most common outcome of reported matters was 'No Further Action' required (35%). In most of these cases, allegations were not substantiated.

In 22% of cases, a formal disciplinary process was applied in accordance with the Public Service Act 2008 or relevant employing legislation. Outcomes included reprimands, increment reduction, classification reduction, monetary penalty, transfer, or termination of employment.
