The Code

WHO DOES IT APPLY TO AND WHEN?

This Code applies to anyone who is engaged by New Zealand Cadet Forces, regardless of the position or rank held. This includes Supplementary Staff who are permanent, temporary or casual within an NZCF unit, volunteers and any other groups or individuals we have advised this Code applies to.

This Code also applies to what we do outside of the NZCF environment where our actions may bring NZCF or NZDF into disrepute or may damage the trust and confidence that the NZCF or NZDF has in us.

HOW CAN WE BE SURE OUR CONDUCT COMPLIES WITH THE CODE AND POLICIES?

The Code provides general guidance and minimum expectations of the behaviour NZCF expects from us. No code or policy can cover every situation, so we need to consider our values, apply our common sense and act with self-respect, and consider the reputation of NZCF and NZDF in our decision making.

The individual circumstances of each situation will determine how the misconduct is treated. Please use the SELF test to guide your decision making, or if you need further clarity talk to your Cadet Unit Commander or Area Support Officer before you take a course of action you think may fall outside the guidance outlined in this Code.
