Attorneys representing the state and local governments are often called upon to provide advice to public officials and public employees on issues such as conflicts of interest, prohibited interest in a government contract, the hiring of family members, and the restrictions on the use of public resources and property. This session is an exhaustive review of all the provisions of the ethics portions of the Nebraska Political Accountability and Disclosure Act (NPADA) and will describe how these situations are regulated by the Act, including the application of the Act to public officials, public employees and to government attorneys themselves. At the conclusion of this program, attorneys will be able to:
- • Identify a conflict of interest, the relevant statutes which control conflict of interest and what to do if there is a potential conflict of interest.
- Identify a prohibited interest in a government contact.
- Recognize prohibited acts and inappropriate gifts to give to public officials and employees.
- Recognize a prohibited use of a public resource.
- Give examples of when nepotism exists, and when the hiring of immediate family members is prohibited.
- Explain the investigation and hearing process of the Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Commission, including the confidentiality provisions of the NPADA.
