This course is an in-depth discussion on how to complete the annual financial disclosure statement.  In addition to the annual ethics training requirement, all senior staff must complete one supplementary hour of ethics training each Congress.  This course will satisfy your requirement for the 115th Congress.

For financial disclosure and ethics training purposes, “senior staff” refers to any employee paid at or above the senior staff level, which is $126,148 for calendar year 2018, for 60 days or more in a calendar year. Senior staff employees are required to complete ethics training as described below.

* All new House staff, including senior staff, must complete new employee ethics training within 60 days of beginning House employment. New senior staff must also complete one hour of general ethics training during each subsequent calendar year they remain on House payroll and complete a second hour of specialized “senior staff” training before the end of the 115th Congress.

* Existing senior staff must complete one hour of general ethics training during each calendar year and complete a second hour of specialized “senior” staff training before the end of the 115th Congress.

* Existing employees who start 2018 at a salary below the senior staff rate, but receive a raise such that they become “senior staff” during 2018 must complete one hour of general ethics training during each calendar year and also must complete the second hour of specialized “senior staff” training before the end of the 115th Congress.
