|We can advise you!|
The Ethics Office provides advice relating to ethics and public integrity issues.
Formal written advice is provided by the Ethics Office based on the particular set of facts we are given by an inquirer. While this advice may provide guidance to others, it should always be remembered that our advisories are specific to a requestor and specific to the facts contained and written in an advisory.
While the Ethics Office can answer questions verbally, any assistance that is not provided in a written advisory is considered informal advice.
To seek advice, please contact our Ask Ethics helpline. Remember, Ask Ethics is of greatest assistance before an action has been taken, or a problem has occurred.
The Ethics Office can provide guidance on a range of issues. Some of the most common areas we advise on are:
Conflicts of Interest
Gifts or Honoraria
Outside Employment or Activities
Safeguarding Public/Private Partnerships
Use of LAUSD Resources
