Reminder: LAO staff cannot accept holiday gifts

Posted: Monday, December 15, 2014

To avoid a conflict of interest, please remember that under Legal Aid Ontario’s (LAO) internal policies and the Public Service of Ontario Act, we cannot accept gifts of appreciation from lawyers, clients or contractors.

While LAO values its business relationships, accepting gifts or amenities that could influence or give the appearance of influencing those relationships is prohibited.

LAO is communicating this reminder to our suppliers and service providers.

We thank all staff for adhering to LAO’s public service values and principles during this holiday season.
