    In the absence of restrictions made necessary by an employee's public responsibilities, he is entitled to the same rights and privileges as all other citizens. There is therefore no general prohibition against Commission employees holding jobs, financial interests, or engaging in outside business or professional activities. Indeed, such outside activities as teaching, lecturing, and writing are generally to be encouraged since they frequently serve to enhance an employee's value to the Government as well as to increase the spread of knowledge in our society. The Chairman may, however, impose reasonable restrictions upon such activities where appropriate. In addition, an employee may not, whether for or without compensation, engage in teaching, lecturing, or writing, including teaching, lecturing or writing for the purpose of the special preparation of a person or class of persons for an examination of the Civil Service Commission or Board of Examiners for the Foreign Service, that is dependent on information obtained as a result of his Government employment, except when that information has been made available to the general public or will be made availabe on request when the head of his employing office gives written authorization for the use of nonpublic information on the basis that its use is in the public interest.
