Gifts Based on Spouse’s Outside Business Relationship

Is it because of who you are?

  • As a Postal Service employee, you may accept meals, lodging, transportation and other benefits that result from your spouse’s business or employment — when it’s clear it has nothing to do with your official status.
  • When you decline gifts from an outside source intended to buy your influence over a postal matter, you preserve the integrity of the Postal Service.

And that’s smart business.
