Can a former state employee perform “back office” activities relative to executive branch lobbying, e.g., doing research, meeting and communicating with clients, preparing position papers, etc, with the understanding that they would have no direct contact with anyone in the executive branch of government?

The “executive branch lobbying activity” that is prohibited by the Revolving Door Law would be “action or communication made to delay, oppose, promote or otherwise influence the outcome of an executive branch action.”  If a former state employee does not engage in activity or communications for this specific purpose, then he or she could lawfully work on “back office” issues. 

 

For more information, see the Executive Branch Lobbyist Registration Rule, visit the Executive Branch Lobbyist website at http://www.in.gov/idoa/2885.htm,  or call (317) 234-4431.
