A new legislation will be enacted to prevent public leaders in Australia from engaging in a sexual relationship with staff.
Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull was quoted by Reuters as saying that ministers without taking into consideration on marital status are not allowed to engage in sexual relations with employees.
Turnbull said the new code of conduct will be enacted in the wake of his deputy admitting to an extramarital affair with a worker.
“Ministers, regardless of whether they are married or single, must not engage in sexual dealings with staff,” Turnbull insisted.
According to him: “In 2018, it is not acceptable for a minister to have a sexual relationship with somebody who works for them. It is a very bad place of work practice.
