Self Help

"Self-helps" are designed to assist ethics advisors and employees in working their way through some of the complicated issues that come up frequently arise in the Federal workplace. Hopefully, by completing an applicable "self-help" you should obtain a greater understanding, not only as to what rules apply to you, but perhaps also why those rules apply.

IMPORTANT: The guidance contained in these tools does not constitute an opinion from an agency ethics advisor as to the true applicability of ethics laws and regulations to your specific situation. For actual ethics advice applicable to your situation, you must contact an ethics advisor.
