One-Year Prohibition for Very Senior Employees
Additionally, 18 U.S.C. 207(d) imposes a one-year prohibition on “very senior employees” against representing others before their former agency or before any official appointed to an Executive Schedule position.
On its face, section 207(d) makes no special provision for SGEs; however, it is unclear whether an SGE would ever occupy a position that falls within the “very senior” category, as described in the statute. (Link to 18 U.S.C. 207(d)(1) for more information).
