To ensure that San Diego's unclassified employees attend ethics training as required by the city council, the commission should either follow the city council's policy or seek a change to align the policy with its current practice.
Revisions to Council Policy 000-04 approved by City Council on September 17, 2013. Link to revised Council Policy sent via email to Joanne Quarles.
The ethics commission provided a strike-out of the revised council policy it approved. In addition, the ethics commission stated that the revised city council policy is currently pending the approval of the Office of the City Attorney. The revised policy states that designated employees shall complete the ethics commission's ethics orientation training within 90 days of assuming office, and thereafter complete the ethics commission's continuing education program on a biennial basis.
