Ethics Pledges

Starting in 2010, the City of Atlanta requires all newly hired employees to sign an Employee Ethics Pledge, and asks other employees and officials to sign the pledge after they receive ethics training.  The ethics pledge informs them about the city's ethics rules and gains their commitment to place the city's best interests above their own financial and personal interests.

In addition, all departing employees are asked to sign a pledge when they retire, resign, or are terminated from city employment.  The pledge informs that about the city’s one-year cooling-off period and its restrictions on their appearances before city agencies or work on behalf of private interests about matters on which they worked while employed at the city.

Other individuals interested in signing the pledge may download the pledge and send a signed copy to the Ethics Office.
