Ethics, as the basis of human life, is the observance of moral law and duties, which gives value to human life. It is a code composed of moral principles and values that direct the behavior of an individual or group towards respecting what is right or wrong. Ethical responsibilities should primarily be directed at us, and then toward others, by striving for ideas and values, through which life would be thoughtful and dignified for all. Ethics sets the standards of what is good or bad in leading and decision-making. It is present in all spheres of human life and can be found in different areas. From a professional point of view, ethics is present in the field of education and in this case, we will pay attention to ethics in the social worker's profession and its challenges in modern society. Everyone who has opted for the profession of a social worker has ethical responsibilities, which will be discussed further in the paper. The principles and responsibilities of the worker in social work are written in a codex, which is a document with clearly defined values and ethical standards, which serve as a guide in this profession. They often appear in organizations and professions such as medicine, law, public accounting, social work, etc. The purpose of ethical codes is to ensure the appropriate behavior of the individual in one activity. Ethics always refers to decision-making; therefore its significance is emphasized, specifically in the field of social work.
