Documentation from Governor Lamont’s Office to Agency Ethics Liaisons
Before accepting employment with the state, individuals must be made aware of the Code of Ethics for Public Officials and State Employees, so that they will understand their general ethical duties as a state employee or public official. Therefore, during the interview process, each person must be given a summary of the State Code of Ethics and an ethics statement by the hiring agency. Furthermore, each new employee must also sign a statement acknowledging receipt of such summary, and agree to comply with the requirements of the state ethics laws. Provided below is the letter from Governor Lamont that should be provided to each potential employee, the Public Officials and State Employees Guide to the Code of Ethics and a receipt acknowledgement form.
