Introduction
 
The Standards of Conduct Office of the Department of Defense GeneralCounsel’s Office has assembled the following selection of cases of ethical failure for useas a training tool. Our goal is to provide DoD personnel with real examples of Federalemployees who have intentionally or unwittingly violated the standards of conduct. Somecases are humorous, some sad, and all are real. Some will anger you as a Federalemployee and some will anger you as an American taxpayer.Please pay particular attention to the multiple jail and probation sentences, fines,employment terminations and other sanctions that were taken as a result of these ethicalfailures. Violations of many ethical standards involve
criminal
statutes. Protect yourself and your employees by learning what you need to know and accessing your Agencyethics counselor if you become unsure of the proper course of conduct. Be sure to accessthem
before
you take action regarding the issue in question. Many of the cases displayedin this collection could have been avoided completely if the offender had taken thissimple precaution.The cases have been arranged according to offense for ease of access. Feel free toreproduce and use them as you like in your ethics training program. For example - youmay be conducting a training session regarding political activities. Feel free to copy andpaste a case or two into your slideshow or handout. Or use them as examples ordiscussion problems. If you have a case you would like to make available for inclusion ina future update of this collection please email it tosoco@dodgc.osd.mil. Fax it to (703)697-1640.
