The Office of Human Resource Management would like to remind all employees (this includes unclassified/classified, faculty, other academic, contingent/transient, graduate/teaching assistant/student worker) that they must complete The Louisiana Code of Governmental Ethics training as well as the Preventing Sexual Misconduct: Commitment to Community training. Below you will find more information about each training, as well as how to complete the requirement.

 

The Louisiana Code of Governmental Ethics, Louisiana Board of Ethics

In response to Louisiana Revised Statute 42:1170, all public employees are required to complete one hour of training on the Code of Governmental Ethics each calendar year by December 31. This online training course is located on the Ethics Board website at http://ethics.la.gov/SeminarRegistration/. Upon completion, the employee will be provided with a certificate that documents the completion of the course. According to the statute, failure to comply with the requirements of training constitutes a violation of the Ethics Code. Any public employee who is found to have violated any provision of any law within the jurisdiction of the Ethics Board can be removed, suspended, or ordered to have a reduction in pay or demotion by the Ethics Board. The board can also impose a fine of not more than ten thousand dollars, or both.

 

Preventing Sexual Misconduct: Commitment to Community

This Preventing Sexual Misconduct course satisfies the training requirements outlined in both the 2012 Louisiana Senate Concurrent Resolution 107, which requires one hour of sexual harassment training, and in Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, which requires training on sexual misconduct prevention. In the course, you will learn about your role in preventing sexual assault and sexual harassment on college campuses. LSU requires that each employee complete the Preventing Sexual Misconduct training by December 31 each calendar year. Every classified employee, professional/unclassified employee, faculty, other academic employee, contingent/transient, graduate and teaching assistant and student worker must complete this training course.
