The city is gradually moving from an emergency response phase into one of relief and recovery. As of Wednesday, May 6, 2020, face coverings are mandatory while inside of or waiting in line to enter any retail or commercial business, or any location or facility offering government of health care services, and waiting for or riding on public transportation.

On May 9, 2020, many businesses will be allowed to re-open with 50% of employees if able to maintain six-foot physical distancing, abide by the face-covering order and other guidelines.

Everyone is urged to stay at home unless absolutely necessary. We know this is a big ask of our residents and businesses, but it is a necessary step to ensure the health and safety of our community.

The Board of Ethics administers the Denver Code of Ethics, which regulates the employees, elected officials, appointed officials and board and commission members of the Denver city government.

The Board also:

  • Gives advice about ethics issues 
  • Investigates complaints submitted by city employees  or citizens about ethics issues regarding Denver city government personnel
  • Works with the Office of Human Resources to provide ethics training to city personnel.

 

How To File a Complaint

  • Submit a Complaint Form to the Board of Ethics.
    *Note:  Board of Ethics is not able to accept complaints about actions that took place more than two years before the date of filing the complaint.
  • The Board of Ethics is required to send a copy of the complaint to the person who is the subject of the complaint.
  • The Board of Ethics will then screen the written complaint and determine whether a public hearing is warranted to consider the complaint.
