Public Employees

Broward’s county employees are governed by the Constitution of the State of Florida, the State Code of Ethics (Chapter 112 of the Florida Statutes), and the Broward Code of Conduct (Sections 26-67 et seq. of the Broward County Code of Ordinances).  Municipal employees must follow the Constitution of the State of Florida, the State Code of Ethics (Chapter 112 of the Florida Statutes), and any applicable, more restrictive municipal laws (see F.S. 112.326).

In addition to other laws, employees are expected to abide by ethics laws relating to:

  • Conflicts of Interest
  • Disclosures
  • Gift Acceptance and Reporting
  • Lobbying and Lobbyists
  • Nepotism
  • Open Meetings
  • Public Records
