Lesson 2: Outside Employment
Acceptance of employment with the agency
obligates an employee to give agency job duties and scheduled
hours priority over outside employment duties and hours.
Employees may not accept or maintain any outside employment that
would represent a conflict of interest, interfere with regularly
assigned agency duties or working hours, or require the
utilization of or derive benefit from state resources. An
employee's work hours or cycle will not be changed to
accommodate outside employment.
Conflicts of Interest 1) employment that might require or induce an employee to disclose confidential
information acquired by reason of employment with the agency; 2)
employment or receipt of compensation that could reasonably be
expected to impair an employee's independence of judgement in
the performance of the employee's official agency duties; 3)
employment that was intentionally or knowingly solicited,
accepted, or agreed upon because the employee exercised his or
her official agency powers or duties in favor of another; or 4)
employment that includes activities conducted for personal
profit that could reasonably be believed to be contrary to the
best interest of the agency.
Use of State Resources As fully described
in ED-02.01 Ethics Policy, no state resources are to be used
for personal profit or gain. Such resources include but are not
limited to state equipment, computers, telephones, copiers,
services, vehicles, inmate or employee labor, and time. Outside
employment activities must be clearly distinguished from agency activities.
The publication and distribution of state
office locations, telephone numbers, or addresses for the
purpose of furthering outside employment activities are
prohibited. Combining outside employment business activities
with assigned agency duties during assigned agency work hours is
Approval Process Prior to commencing
outside employment, employees must complete and submit a
Request for Outside Employment
form and receive approval in accordance with the procedures lined out in PD-80
