The Federal Supervisor’s Guide to Ethics, Rules, and Responsibilities

Michael Corum, among America’s leading authors on management in federal service, turns to helping federal managers and supervisors with both legalities and the practicalities of ethical issues. To carry out their ethical responsibilities, federal supervisors and managers need more than a simple recitation of ethics laws and regulations, but usable guidance in lay terms with sufficient examples from real federal employee cases to give them confidence in recognizing and handling ethical issues. This highly usable guide starts by showing readers the basic sources of ethics rules in federal service, then it takes the major ethical issues supervisors are faced with and explains in non-bureaucratic language what is and is not prohibited, and more important, the realities and practicalities of handling the ethical situations. Then, the last chapter shows supervisors how to enforce the rules and deal with violations to avoid the most common mistakes agencies make in handling ethics violations.

Major topics include:

Sources of Ethics Rules

The Major Ethical Topics

Enforcement of Ethics Rules
