Ethics training is provided and administered by the Ethics Officer at EIU for all employees including student employees.
Ethics training was put into law in 2003 by the State of Illinois. State Officials and Employees Ethics Act (The Ethics Act) training addresses several important issues for state employees: Ethics Training — both annual and for new employees; prohibited political activities including contributions on state property; procurement communication reporting; gift ban; "revolving door" prohibitions and requirements; "whistle blower" protection and others.
All new employees, including students, are required to take the training upon their employment, within the first 30 days. Employees are required to take the training annually thereafter.
Please visit the Ethics website for further information or contact Julie Benedict, 217-581-8415, firstname.lastname@example.org. Contact Rob Miller, EIU's Ethics Officer, 217-581-5399, email@example.com for any Ethics questions or concerns.
