USPS: Employees still need to follow ethics rules during pandemic

USPS wants employees to continue honoring federal ethics guidelines during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Postal Service wants employees to know that the organization’s ethics rules continue to apply during the coronavirus pandemic.

Employees should remember they are prohibited from:

  • Using their postal positions for the private gain of themselves or other persons or entities, including their friends or relatives

“Postal employees perform a public service that is based on the public’s trust,” said Jessica Brewster-Johnson, senior ethics counsel. “Public service must be free of any taint of private financial interest. Maintaining the public’s trust drives positive business results for the Postal Service. Following the ethics rules helps maintain the public’s trust in the Postal Service.”
