What is an endorsement?
When Postal Service employees provide
favorable comments - in writing, on video, or as conference speakers - about
the services or products of a company with whom they have postal business interactions,
their comments can be used by the company in its promotional efforts.
Why shouldnt you endorse companies? Because it violates federal
ethics regulations. Under the standards of ethical conduct, a postal employee
may not use, or permit the use of, his/her position, title, or any authority
associated with his position, to endorse non-postal products, services, or enterprises.
