Under Australian law, public servants are recognised as citizens and are entitled to participate and be involved in political activities, with a few minor restrictions.
Advice on the Australian Public Service Commission’s website says “APS employees may participate in political activities as part of normal community affairs. They may also join, or hold office in, political parties.”
When participating in political activities, such as handing out How-to-Vote cards, running a stall or doorknocking, the general rule of thumb is: if an APS employee is involved in political campaigning, they should make it clear they are not undertaking these activities as part of their official duties. For example, they should not wear anything that identifies them as an APS employee at party political meetings. APS employees must not use government resources including email, telephones, photocopiers and fax machines for any political activity.
Public servants can join, too!
To put it in simple terms: you must be able to separate your professional work from your personal politics.
Generally, it is best that when you are engaging in political activities that you don’t directly discuss or make comment on issues that are directly relevant to the area that you work in. Importantly, make sure your manager at work is aware when you are going to be participating in political activities. This will maintain trust between yourself and your employer.
