Hatch Act reminders from NASCOE

All NASCOE members (as well as nonmember FSA Employees) who use any type of social media including Facebook, should review the FAQ page on the Office of Special Counsel web page regarding the use of Social Media during this political season.  You will have to tab several pages to questions 101 – 110 for information on social media.  It could be a possible violation of the Hatch Act to post, like, share or comment, tweet, re-tweet or any other action on a partisan social media entry of any type while on official time.  Be very careful!  It is also not acceptable to use your official title to campaign, endorse or attend any political event in your official capacity.  That includes any partisan or non-partisan event including but not limited to town mayor, schoolboard, rural water board, city council, etc.  These types of Hatch act violation investigations would come from above the agency level and your agency would be of little help.  If you even question the fact that it might be an ethics violation DON'T DO IT.
