Ethics & Conflict of Interest Law
for Municipal Employees

Link to On-line Conflict of Interest Law Course
The Conflict of Interest Law, M.G.L. Ch 268A, was provided to prevent conflicts between private interests and public duties, foster integrity in public service and promote the public's trust and confidence in that service by placing restrictions on what municipal employees may do on the job, after hours and after leaving public service.
All municipal employees will receive the Summary of the Conflict of Interest Law within 30 days of their initial hire date, as well as once a year thereafter. Employees are required to sign a receipt acknowledging they have been provided the Summary of the Conflict of Interest Law and return it to the Office of the Town Clerk as soon as possible.
Another educational tool provided by the State Ethics Commission is a short twenty question, multiple choice, online training program that presents certain scenarios in which an ethical quandary has been presented and the test taker must choose the proper course of action. A completion certificate must be printed out at the end of the quiz and a copy handed in to the Office of the Town Clerk (we highly recommend that you keep a copy in your own files). This must be done within 30 days by new employees and also once every two years from inception forwards.
While this should not be a substitute for legal advice, employees can obtain free confidential advice about how the conflict of interest law may apply to you via the State Ethics Commission:
