Here’s why USPS employees should follow ethics rules

A new video shows common lapses and how to avoid them

The Postal Service has released a video that shows the importance of ethical behavior on the job.

The video addresses three common types of ethical lapses: mail destruction, mail theft and misuse of postal property.

The four-minute animated video reminds employees they have a duty to protect the sanctity of the U.S. Mail. Willful acts of mail theft, delay and destruction affect the public’s trust in USPS and hurt the organization’s reputation.

Additionally, the video emphasizes proper use of Voyager cards, which should be used to purchase fuel for postal vehicles. The cards are regularly audited and tracked and should never be used to buy fuel for a personal vehicle, drinks or snacks.

The video, available on the Link website and the Ethics Blue page, will be shown to employees throughout the organization this week and next.
