State Officials and Employees Ethics Act
State Officials and Employees Ethics Act Heading link
Enacted in 2003 by the General Assembly of the State of Illinois, the State Officials and Employees Ethics Act requires each officer and employee of all state agencies and universities to complete an ethics training program annually beginning in 2004. The Illinois Inspector General develops the timeline for the annual ethics training program and all University of Illinois employees must do the ethics training during that time. The University of Illinois has developed an interactive program that will allow employees to meet their annual ethics training obligation. This program is administered by the University of Illinois Ethics and Compliance Office. For further information regarding the training, timelines, and penalties for non-compliance, refer to the Ethics and Compliance Office FAQ.
