GOAL 4: TO MAINTAIN JUDICIAL INDEPENDENCE, WHILE OBSERVING THE PRINCIPLE OF COMITY IN ITS GOVERNMENTAL RELATIONS AND ACCOUNTABILITY TO THE PUBLIC.


Objective

4.3 To use fair employment practices and to train and develop the court’s human resources.

Intent of the Objective

The judiciary stands as an important and visible symbol of government. Equal treatment of all persons before the law is essential to the concept of justice. Accordingly, the courts should operate free of bias in their personnel practices and decisions. Fairness in the recruitment, compensation, supervision, and development of court personnel helps to ensure judicial independence, accountability, and organizational competence. Fairness in employment also helps establish the highest standards of personal integrity and competence among employees.
