New South Carolina DOT Policy Aims to Clarify Ethics Law
The South Carolina Department of Transportation is instituting a new rule regarding employees who leave state employment to work for state contractors.
The new policy will prohibit former employees from working on new road construction projects for 365 days after leaving the department.
The department’s acting secretary says the new policy will help clarify state ethics law and ensure there is no perception of impropriety.
