Faculty, Staff and Graduate Assistant Training

All employees with an employment classification other than SA (undergraduate student worker), EH (extra help employee) or RA/RB (medical resident), are required to complete this ethics training course once annually. 

The program will be available this year from:

October 2-31, 2017 (ENDS 5pm CT)


Employees will receive an email at their official university account, prompting them to complete their training.  It will also include instructions and the login/password combination to access their training at: www.workplaceanswers.com/uillinois


This training is an annual requirement, based on the Illinois State Officials and Employees Ethics Act, and the standards set by the Office of Executive Inspector General for the Agencies of the Illinois Governor.  All employees, including those on paid sabbaticals, are required to complete the course.  It takes between 40 minutes and one hour to complete and should be completed on work time, as directed by your supervisor.  The course must be completed in its entirety by 5 PM central time on the last day of the training window to satisfy this requirement.  The course will close promptly at 5 PM central time and any employees in process (not fully completed) will be considered noncompliant.


Employees who are unable to complete the program online should contact the University Ethics and Compliance Office.
