PRINCIPAL FINED $4,500 FOR ACCEPTING TWO FREE INTERNATIONAL TRIPS FROM HIS SUBORDINATE
The New York City Conflicts of Interest Board (“Board”) and the New York City Department of Education (“DOE”) concluded a settlement with a Principal who traveled abroad twice with his subordinate, a School Aide: to Greece in 2011, and to Italy, Greece, Turkey, and Croatia in 2012. The School Aide paid in full for both trips, a total of $10,829.90. The Principal acknowledged that his conduct violated the City’s conflicts of interest law, which prohibits City employees from using their City positions to obtain a personal benefit, and agreed to pay a $4,500 fine to the Board. Scroll down or click  here to view the public disposition in this case. All of the Board’s dispositions are available free of charge, in full-text searchable form, on the website for the Center for New York City Law at New York Law School (www.CityAdmin.org). The Board took the occasion of this settlement to remind City employees that accepting a gift from their subordinates – except a gift of customary value on special occasions, such as wedding or the birth or adoption of a child – will violate the City’s conflicts of interest law, as detailed in the Board’s Advisory Opinion No. 2013-1. Carolyn Lisa Miller, Director of Enforcement, handled this case for the Board. Laura Hemans Brantley, Deputy Counsel to the Chancellor, handled this case for DOE. The Board gratefully acknowledges the work of its confidential investigative arm, the New York City Department of Investigation (“DOI”), Acting DOI Commissioner Victor Olds, Special Commissioner of Investigation for the New York City School District (“SCI”) Richard J. Condon, and SCI Investigator Vincent Lee, who handled the investigation.
