DOVER, Del. (AP) - The Delaware Public Integrity Commission has referred the case of a former state employee who the commission believes accepted a job in violation of post-employment restrictions to the attorney general’s office.

Because of secrecy rules that govern the commission’s operations, the identity of the former employee is not known.

The commission discussed the case behind closed doors Tuesday, then referred it to the Department of Justice for further investigation and possible prosecution.

The commission also considered several other confidential requests by state employees for advisory opinions or waivers.

Those cases mostly involve state employees working or wanting to work for agency contractors or private businesses. Another case involves a potential conflict of interest regarding a state agency contracting with a business that is owned by a manager’s son.
