Accepting Gifts, Gratuities, or Free Admission to Events

The ASU Office of General Counsel has posted a briefing paper on this Web site concerning ASU employees accepting gifts, gratuities and free admission to cultural or sporting events. The briefing paper addresses both the prohibitions on ASU employees accepting gifts or gratuities under certain circumstances as well as the statutory "entertainment ban" which sets out the parameters under which an ASU employee may accept free admission to a cultural or sporting event. The paper includes narrative descriptions of the applicable laws and ASU Policies as well as hypothetical situations that show how those laws and policies apply to certain situations.
