Description

This compilation of Federal ethics laws has been prepared by the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) for the ethics community. In preparing this book, they have included not only the laws within the jurisdiction of the ethics program, but also other related statutes on which ethics officials are often called upon to provide advice to agency employees. The Office of Government Ethics hopes that this book will be a useful tool to ethics officials in carrying out their important work of helping Federal employees to fulfill the public trust placed in them when they enter public service.

This compilation includes all provisions signed into law through the end of the 114th Congress.

Federal employees, federal agency ethics and human capital officers, supervisors, and members of Congress will be most interested in this primary source volume.  Corporate and nonprofit organizational staff may also be interested in this text as a reference for guidelines within their employment fields.  Lastly, this resource may be helpful for research for philosophy majors or students pursuing Ethics in Society classes and also law school students.
