§ 41.175  RECOVERY OF VALUE TRANSFERRED OR RECEIVED IN BREACH OF ETHICAL STANDARDS.
   (A)   General provisions.  The value of anything transferred or received in breach of the ethical standards of this chapter by a county employee or non-employee may be recovered from both the county employee and the non-employee.
   (B)   Recovery of kickbacks by the county.  Upon showing that a subcontractor made a kickback to a prime contractor or a higher tier subcontractor in connection with the award of a subcontract or an order thereunder, it shall be conclusively presumed that the amount thereof was included in the price of the subcontract or order and ultimately borne by the county and will be recoverable hereunder from the recipient. In addition, the amount may also be recovered from the subcontractor making the kickbacks. Recovery from one offending party shall not preclude recovery from other offending parties.
