The State Ethics Commission held a Conflict of Interest Law Training Seminar in Rutland on Thursday, October 12, 2017.
Chapter 28 of the Acts of 2009, the ethics reform law, imposes mandatory education and training requirements on public employers and public employees. The law authorizes the Commission to establish procedures to implement and ensure compliance with these requirements, and these Implementation Procedures are issued pursuant to that authority. The requirements can be summarized as follows:
Each year, every state, county, and municipal employee must be given a summary of the conflict of interest law prepared by the Ethics Commission and, every two years, they must complete an online training program prepared by the Commission.
The Town Clerk is responsible for distributing the summaries on a yearly basis and maintaining a file with the Certificate of Completion of the online training program for all municipal employees and board and committee members.
