USPS wants to remind employees that there are rules regarding employment outside the Postal Service.

If you have a second job or own an outside business, remember that postal time, equipment and resources cannot be used to serve another employer.

There’s also a conflict if the outside job prevents you from adequately performing your USPS duties, including maintaining regular and on-time attendance.

Sales activity — including the solicitation of business or receipt of orders while on duty, in uniform or on postal property — is prohibited.

Postal employees cannot work for:

• Companies that manufacture uniforms or other products for USPS;

• Transportation contractors who move mail to or from the employee’s postal facility;

• FedEx, UPS, DHL, Amazon and other companies that deliver mailable matter;

• Commercial mail receiving agencies, such as a UPS Store.

USPS employees also cannot be employed as consultants on postal operations, programs or procedures.

Employees who have questions should call the USPS Ethics Office helpline at 202-268-6346 or send an email to the Ethics and Legal Compliance team at ethics.help@usps.gov.
