Misuse of Position

Don’t Position Yourself to Benefit Yourself

  • As a Postal Service employee, you can’t use your position for your private gain.
  • Or the private gain of your relatives.
  • Or anyone you are affiliated with outside the government.

When you keep it ethical, you maintain the integrity of the Postal Service.

And that’s smart business.

More than half of the OIG’s misconduct investigations involve a misuse-of-position issue. Contact the Ethics Office (ethics.help@usps.gov) for more guidance.
