    Tuck this note into your boss's Christmas card!

    I was just looking for gift ideas for the people in my department, and ran across a link to this- USDOJ: JMD: Departmental Ethics Office: Gifts Between Employees

    "An employee may not give, or solicit a contribution for, a gift to an official superior, and she may not accept a gift from an employee receiving less pay than her if the employee is a subordinate.
    On annual occasions where gifts are traditionally given, such as birthdays, Christmas, Boss's Day, an employee may give the following to an official superior:
    • Items, other than cash, valued at $10 or less;
    • Items such as food and refreshments to be shared in the office; and
    • Personal hospitality provided at a residence which is of a type and value customarily provided by the employee to personal friends.
    On special, infrequent occasions, such as marriage, illness, or the birth of a child, or an occasion that terminates the superior/subordinate relationship, an employee may give an official superior a gift that is appropriate to the occasion. In addition, an employee may solicit voluntary contributions of nominal amounts from fellow employees, but not subordinates, to contribute to the gift.
    5 C.F.R. 2635.301-304 (see Subpart C - Gifts Between Employees)"

    Never has there been a better excuse to be a cheap *** in shopping for your boss!

    Why would you get your boss a christmas present anyway? Be a man and take a stand. Cyclone pride....I don't think so.

    Because it is better to give than receive?
