Staffers With Ethics Waivers

In rare cases, federal employees can obtain a waiver from conflict-of-interest rules.

These waivers are reviewed by government ethics attorneys. Those attorneys take into account the scope of the financial conflict, the importance of the employee’s role and even if the “particular matter” they’re working on is controversial or sensitive.
