Ask the Lawyer received the following question (paraphrased for easier reading and clarity) from a reader on a legal matter that might be of interest to the entire audience.
Are there any rules that apply that say your supervisor has to give gifts to employees yearly?
There are no rules that require a supervisor to give gifts to employees. There are rules that govern which federal employees may give gifts and the appropriate type of gift. These rules are governed by the Office of Government ethics and can be found here.
