Before an individual enters on duty as a
special Government employee, expert or consultant he is required to submit a statement
of employment and financial interests to the Chairman on forms approved by the
Chairman and furnished to the individual. Such forms must be completed in accordance
with the instructions applicable thereto. This requirement applies to all other special
Government employee positions unless the Chairman determines prior to appointment that
the duties of the position are of such a level of responsibility that the submission
of the statement is not necessary to protect the integrity of the Government. For the
purpose of this section, "consultant" and "expert" shall be given these terms by chapter
304 of the Federal Personnel Manual.
Each special Government employee shall keep his
statement of employment and financial interests current throughout his OSHRC employment
by the submission of supplementary statements.
