THE Public Service Commission is reiterating its call for an effective and diligent workforce after recently terminating the services of four public servants as a measure of discipline.
PSC chairman Josefa Serulagilagi said PSC was now calling for a diligent and effective workforce that would continue to uphold the values and ethics of the public service.
Mr Serulagilagi said two of the cases were of sexual misconduct involving schoolteachers while the other two were of misuse of funds.
"It is imperative that the commission highlights its zero tolerance to such incidents of misbehaviour, misconduct and abuse in the civil service," he said.
He said officers were also entrusted to serve faithfully and therefore any misconduct would not be tolerated.
Those disciplinary cases have all been in breach of the Public Service Code of Conduct, Section 6 to which grounds for disciplinary action is under Section 7 of the Public Service Act, 1999.
