Reminder: LAO staff cannot accept holiday gifts

Posted on: Wednesday, December 19, 2012


To avoid a conflict of interest, please remember that under Legal Aid Ontarios (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 LAOs public service values and principles during this holiday season.
