Maintaining the Highest Level of Ethical Practices
The WCIG Ethics Program includes training, advice, and counseling of employees regarding their obligations under the WCIG ethics regulations and the conflict of interest statutes. The training program includes both initial ethics training for new employees and annual ethics training for current employees and officials. The ethics officials also provide advice and counseling regarding the following:
(1) Seeking and negotiating for future employment and post employment; (2) Restrictions to employees leaving the organization; and (3) Advice and counseling regarding statutory post employment restrictions to former WCIG employees and offcials.
Additionally, ethics officials provide basic training and counseling regarding the Hatch Act.
The ethics program also includes a financial disclosure requirement for all high level employees and officials to identify potential conflicts of interest and to assist them in avoiding actual conflicts of interest or the appearance of a conflict of interest. The ethics officials conduct a program to screen the financial interests of the highest level officials with regard to the activities of the organization.
