Federal gift rules do not take a holiday
from U.S. Office of Government Ethics
As TV, radio, movies, social media, the Internet, and just about every other form of commercial communication ceaselessly remind us, this time of year has become a season for gift-giving and gift-getting. Even in the workplace, there can be social pressure not to be a “Scrooge.” Employees may feel they have to accept gifts in the spirit in which they are offered or even give gifts to others. But in the federal workplace, the ethics rules prohibiting gifts do not take a holiday.
