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 shouldn’t 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.
