Conflict of interest law disclosures for state, county, and municipal employees filed with the State Ethics Commission
The conflict of interest law prevents conflicts between public employees’ private interests and their public duties. The law places restrictions on public employees may do on the job, after hours, and after leaving public service.
In certain situations, it may be possible for a public employee to get an exemption to the conflict of interest law by filing a public disclosure form. If you have a question whether you are eligible for an exemption to the law, please contact the State Ethics Commission at (617) 371-9500 to request advice from the Attorney of the Day.
