With the upcoming holiday season, many employees wonder when it is permissible to give and receive gifts. The Office of Audit, Compliance & Ethics provides the following guidance on complying with the State Code of Ethics’ gift rules:
- The University Guide to the State Code of Ethics- http://policy.uconn.edu/?p=387
- Holiday Gifts Frequently Asked Questions- http://audit.uconn.edu/holiday-frequently-asked-questions/
- Office of State Ethics- Public Officials and State Employees Guide to the Code of Ethics
