Ethics training is now mandatory for State Employees and Special State Officers.
Ethics Liaison Officers are encouraged to contact the Commission's training officer to schedule training for their employees. We also encourage you to consider ethics training as a component of other regularly scheduled employee training. Subject to availability, the Commission's Ethics Training Officer will be available to provide ethics training as a part of employee development workshops, staff meetings, seminars or new employee orientation programs.
On-line training is also available for State employees and Special state officers. The Commission recently revised the on-line training programs for State employees and Special state offices and developed new programs for State college and university faculty and trustees. The programs are available on this website and include a slide presentation and detailed narrative that replicates the substance of the in-person training programs. At the conclusion of the program, employees will receive a receipt indicating that they have completed the on-line training.
Employees of agencies and authorities that have completed ethics training are required to receive the annual, mandatory ethics briefing in any year that they do not receive training. Employees and officers should contact their agency Ethics Liaison Officer (ELO) for information about the ethics briefing.
Please contact the Commission's Ethics Training Officer Margaret Cotoia with suggestions for providing ethics training to your employees. The Commission is committed to helping ELOs and training coordinators deliver ethics training to their departments in the most efficient, effective way possible.
