Commonwealth Bank committed to behaviour that reflects our values

5 February 2016

Commonwealth Bank is currently conducting an internal investigation of communications that occurred between 2009 and 2013. Part of this investigation has uncovered evidence of non-trading related breaches that has resulted in the dismissal of an employee for offensive language and behaviour. 

Commonwealth Bank has zero tolerance for conduct that contradicts our core values by any employee and we demand high standards of behaviour and professional conduct from all our employees.

We are dedicated to ensuring that our culture is inclusive and respectful for our people and our customers. Whenever we have cause to suspect any activity against these core values it will be investigated thoroughly and necessary action taken to ensure the integrity of our organisation is not compromised. This reflects our willingness to take action even when the inappropriate behaviour has occurred in the past.
