New ILG Resource on Ethics for Local Agencies Available

August 22, 2013
It can often be difficult to keep track of the various California ethics laws and requirements for local agency officials and staff. Thankfully, the Institute for Local Government (ILG) has just released an updated e-version of the publication, Understanding the Basics of Public Service Ethics.
This resource is available for free as a downloadable e-book at www.ca-ilg.org/EthicsLaws.
The book provides a useful overview both for those that are new to public service and those that might need a refresher on the ever-changing obligations California law imposes on public servants. The topics covered in the e-book include:
  • Personal financial gains laws
  • Perk issues, including compensation, use of public resources and gift laws
  • Transparency laws
  • Fair process and merit-based decision making
The e-book also can be used to support a local agency’s mandatory AB 1234 ethics training. It can be downloaded, printed, and duplicated to be used as a whole or as individual subject matter handouts depending on an agency’s need.
This resource is made available for free thanks to the generosity of the following Institute supporters Aleshire & Wynder, Best Best & Krieger, Burke Williams & Sorensen, Hanson Bridgett, Kronick Moskovitz Tiedemann & Girard, Liebert Cassidy Whitmore, Richards Watson & Gershon, and Renne Sloan Holtzman Sakai.
