3009: Restrictions on Employees Receiving Gratuities

An employee who, because of his or her employment by the ESU, receives any bonus merchandise or gift with a value over $ 50.00 must disclose the receipt of such gift to the Administrator, who will then report that gift to the board. The Administrator, at his or her discretion, may require that the gift become the property of the ESU. No certificated staff member may accept any gift which will impair the professional judgment of the recipient.

Employees are directed to discourage merchants from offering bonus paraphernalia in exchange for the ESU’s patronage.
