Who we serve

The State Ethics Commission serves the public by fostering integrity in government. The independent agency provides free advice to all public employees on the conflict of interest law, and civilly enforces this law.

Ethics Commission reminds public employees about restrictions on gifts

With the winter holiday season upon us, the State Ethics Commission reminds state, county, and municipal employees that certain gifts may be prohibited by law. In general, public employees may not accept gifts worth $50 or more that are given because of their public position or because of an official act. There are some exceptions. See the full announcement here.
