Section 11-65-11

Qualifications of commission employees.

Each appointed officer and each employee of a commission shall be of good moral character and shall never have been convicted of a felony or other offense involving moral turpitude. As a condition of employment by a commission, each employee shall make and submit to such commission an affidavit confirming his or her qualifications, as set forth in the preceding sentence, to be an employee of such commission, which affidavit shall constitute a part of the permanent personnel records of such commission. Any employee of a commission who in such affidavit intentionally makes a false statement of material fact or intentionally fails to disclose any information necessary to make any statement of material fact made therein not misleading shall be guilty of perjury and shall be subject to prosecution and punishment therefor in the same manner as if he had committed perjury as a witness in open court.
