The Chairman shall promptly review each
initial and supplementary statement of employment and financial interests required
by this part. No individual may enter on duty as a special Government employee if
the Chairman determines that employment would be in conflict with the standard set
forth in this part, or other applicable regulations, laws, or orders.
Before the chairman disapproves a statement
of employment and financial interests submitted by a regular or special Government
employee, such employee must be given an opportunity to furnish such additional information
as may be appropriate in considering the statement of employment and financial interests.
If, after adequate investigation, he disapproves an employee's statement of employment and
financial interests, he shall promptly notify the employee of the disapproval and recommend
appropriate remedial action pursuant to §2202.3. If the employee is unwilling or
unable to take such action, the Chairman shall forthwith take appropriate action on such statements
of employment and financial interests and shall initiate appropriate remedial action
under §2202.3 and other applicable laws, orders, and regulations. Pending any final
determination with regard to an employee's statement of employment and financial interest,
the Chairman shall relieve the employee of any duties which appear to conflict with a
private interest or activity.
