Do you know what it means to be ethical? Do you know if you can hire a relative to work under your supervision? Test your knowledge with a short quiz on the County’s ethics program as we mark Ethics Awareness Month.
No need to stop there. Give yourself one extra credit point for taking the Ethics 101 online training. The training on LMS is just 8 minutes long. Add a point for reaffirming your commitment to do the right thing, even when no one is watching. And another extra credit point if you pledge to report misconduct, ethical lapses or anything that doesn’t seem quite right.
If you have a question about an answer on this quiz or a real life ethical dilemma, ask! If you are not comfortable going to your supervisor or manager, or if your concern relates to a supervisor or manager, call the County’s Ethics Hotline at (866) 549-0004. The hotline is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is operated by a third party, so employees can report concerns anonymously. Employees can also report concerns online.
Mark your calendars! The Office of Ethics and Compliance will host an Ethics Awareness Month Information Fair later this month. The 5th annual event will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., March 29 at the County Operations Center Plaza. There will be booths, music, a speaker, free goodies and prizes.
