A statement from The Honourable Chris Kourakis, Chief Justice of South Australia
The Heads of Jurisdiction of the Supreme Court, District Court, Magistrates Court, Coroners Court and Youth Court have endorsed and adopted the Judicial Officer Appropriate Workplace Conduct Policy.
We are committed to providing a safe, respectful and supportive workplace for all and will not tolerate inappropriate workplace conduct by judicial officers.
The authority assumed with taking judicial office comes with a responsibility to lead by example in court, in our workplaces and in the community. This policy, adopted by resolution of the judicial officers of every court, is a continuing commitment to maintain these standards of behaviour in connection with our workplace.
