DOT employees must adhere to specific standards of ethical conduct. DOT employees must also comply with Federal ethics laws and other laws that address employee conduct. To assist DOT employees in meeting their ethical obligations, DOT conducts an ethics program that provides ongoing ethics training, advice, and counseling. The Standards of Ethical Conduct provide an essential guide for employees to follow as they perform their duties and responsibilities.
Former DOT employees must adhere to post employment restrictions in the Federal ethics laws. Former DOT employees with questions about their post employment obligations are encouraged to contact us.
