Solution for Identifying New Employees

Agency information technology divisions may be helpful in identifying new employees who must file new entrant financial disclosure reports and who require initial ethics orientation. One agency requires that the form authorizing the creation of a new employee computer account be signed by the ethics official. Without the ethics official’s signature, the employee cannot access the agency’s computers or networks. This practice alerts ethics officials every time a new employee joins the agency and allows the ethics officials to timely provide initial ethics orientation and collect new entrant financial disclosure reports.
