Ethical Considerations When Representing Government Employees


Gain an overview of common ethical pitfalls made by public officials and public employees that can lead to violations and consequences.

Do you or your government clients take guilty pleasure in watching the ethical missteps of government employees play out in the news media? Would you like to make sure that your clients are not the unfortunate targets of such media attention? If so, this topic is for you. This material will give you an overview of common ethical pitfalls made by public officials and public employees that can lead to embarrassment, unemployment, or a criminal investigation. This information will discuss various ethical laws, rules, and regulations. We will look at these issues from the perspective of the public employee, the government lawyer, and outside counsel and the different challenges that may arise as a result of holding those differing perspectives. The material will review various case studies and examples of ethical violations and their consequences. Learn how easy it can be to find your clients in the headlines and numerous ways to help them avoid this unenviable fate.
