No action for removal or discipline shall be taken under this subsection except upon the referral or with the approval of the State Ethics Commission or the Joint Legislative Committee on Ethical Standards, whichever is authorized to exercise jurisdiction with respect to the complaint upon which such action for removal or discipline is to be taken. (e) A code of ethics for officers and employees of a State agency shall conform to the following general standards: (1) No State officer or employee or special State officer or employee should have any interest, financial or other-wise, direct or indirect, or engage in any business or transaction or professional activity, which is in substantial conflict with the proper discharge of his duties in the public interest. (2) No State officer or employee or special State officer or employee should engage in any particular business, pro-fession, trade or occupation which is subject to licensing or regulation by a specific agency of State Government with-out promptly filing notice of such activity with the State Ethics Commission, if he is an officer or employee in the Ex-ecutive Branch, or with the Joint Legislative Committee on Ethical Standards, if he is an officer or employee in the Leg-islative Branch. (3) No State officer or employee or special State officer or employee should use or attempt to use his official posi-tion to secure unwarranted privileges or advantages for himself or others. (4) No State officer or employee or special State officer or employee should act in his official capacity in any mat-ter wherein he has a direct or indirect personal financial interest that might reasonably be expected to impair his objec-tivity or independence of judgment. (5) No State officer or employee or special State officer or employee should undertake any employment or service, whether compensated or not, which might reasonably be expected to impair his objectivity and independence of judg-ment in the exercise of his official duties. (6) No State officer or employee or special State officer or employee should accept any gift, favor, service or other thing of value under circumstances from which it might be reasonably inferred that such gift, service or other thing of value was given or offered for the purpose of influencing him in the discharge of his official duties. (7) No State officer or employee or special State officer or employee should knowingly act in any way that might reasonably be expected to create an impression or suspicion among the public having knowledge of his acts that he may be engaged in conduct violative of his trust as a State officer or employee or special State officer or employee. (8) Rules of conduct adopted pursuant to these principles should recognize that under our democratic form of gov-ernment public officials and employees should be drawn from all of our society, that citizens who serve in government cannot and should not be expected to be without any personal interest in the decisions and policies of government; that citizens who are government officials and employees have a right to private interests of a personal, financial and eco-nomic nature; that standards of conduct should separate those conflicts of interest which are unavoidable in a free society from those conflicts of interest which are substantial and material, or which bring government into disrepute. (f) The code of ethics for members of the Legislature shall conform to subsection (e) hereof as nearly as may be possible. 52:13D-24.
