Notice of Intention to Amend the Conflict of Interest Code of the Labor and Workforce Development Agency

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Labor & Workforce Development Agency, pursuant to the authority vested in it by section 87306 of the Government Code, proposes amendment to its conflict of interest code. A comment period has been established commencing on August 27, 2021 and closing on October 11, 2021. All inquiries should be directed to the contact listed below.

The Labor & Workforce Development Agency proposes to amend its conflict of interest code to include employee positions that involve the making or participation in the making of decisions that may foreseeably have a material effect on any financial interest, as set forth in subdivision (a) of section 87302 of the Government Code. The amendment carries out the purposes of the law and no other alternative would do so and be less burdensome to affected persons.

Changes to the conflict of interest code include deletion of positions, addition of positions with disclosure categories, and other technical changes to reflect the current organizational structure of the Department. Copies of the amended code are available and may be requested from the Contact Person set forth below.

Information on the code amendment is available on the agency’s internet site and/or attached to this email.

Any interested person may submit written comments relating to the proposed amendment by submitting them no later than September 30, 2021, or at the conclusion of the public hearing, if requested, whichever comes later. At this time, no public hearing is scheduled. A person may request a hearing no later than September 15, 2021.

The Labor & Workforce Development Agency has determined that the proposed amendments:

    1. Impose no mandate on local agencies or school districts.
    2. Impose no costs or savings on any state agency.
    3. Impose no costs on any local agency or school district that are required to be reimbursed under Part 7 (commencing with Section 17500) of Division 4 of Title 2 of the Government Code.
    4. Will not result in any nondiscretionary costs or savings to local agencies.
    5. Will not result in any costs or savings in federal funding to the state.
    6. Will not have any potential cost impact on private persons, businesses or small businesses.
