​​​5.2.5 Conflict of Interest

Service in the archdiocese carries with it a responsibility to act in an ethical manner. All staff are expected to refrain from any transaction where their own interests or the interests of those considered family may conflict with those of the archdiocese. In particular, before accepting a second job from a different employer or at a different location, a staff member must consult with the person in charge to discuss the potential of a conflict of interest. Staff cannot accept, offer, or endorse any service, payment or gift, unless it is in the normal course of business following open, legal, and authorized procedures. These rules do not, of course, include birthday or Christmas gifts, business meals of reasonable value, or other gifts of nominal value.​
