Ohio’s Ethics Law

SSU employees are subject to Ohio’s Ethics Law that prohibits the sale of goods or services to the University if the employee or a family member(s) could personally benefit from the contract or have some other unlawful interest in the contract. Nor may employees solicit or accept anything of value from a vendor or potential vendor with the university. These ethical prohibitions apply to all employees, including those with signature authority. For more detailed information, click on the Ohio Ethics Commission links below.
