The JPL Ethics Office

Ethics Resources

Every employee must seek guidance when ethical business issues are unclear and to report suspected violations. Sometimes recognizing issues is not so easy. Employees are encouraged to seek guidance and become familiar with JPL's ethics resources.


Remember that your supervisor is often your first resource for ethics advice and to answer questions. Your supervisor and other subject matter experts are always available to assist you with frank and open communication.
