Senior Staff

"Senior staff" refers to any employee paid at the senior staff level, which is $127,914 for calendar year 2019.  In general, senior staff employees are required to complete two ethics trainings in order to satisfy the Committee's training requirement.

  •     New senior staff must complete new employee ethics training within 60 days of beginning House employment and complete a second hour of specialized "senior staff" training before the end of the 116th Congress.
  •     Existing senior staff must complete one hour of ethics training during each calendar year and complete a second hour of specialized "senior" staff training before the end of the 116th Congress.
  •     Existing employees who start 2019 at a salary below the senior staff rate, but receive a raise such that they become "senior staff" must complete the second hour of specialized "senior staff" training before the end of the 116th Congress.

Currently, live senior staff trainings are being planned for November and December 2019 and a video for district staff is under development. Please check the Ethics Committee website for updates on upcoming senior staff sessions.

Note: Senior staff employees who completed a second hour of specialized "senior staff" training during the 115th Congress are required to take an additional hour of specialized "senior staff" training before the end of the 116th Congress.
