The lobbying law is not an impediment to a business' continuing to pay an
elected official a regular salary or wage even if the employer derives a portion
of its income from the provision of professional services to a principal, as long
as the business can clearly and convincingly demonstrate that (1) the
official’s level of compensation is unrelated to the employer's having one or
more principals as clients; (2) the principal's purchase of services is unrelated
to the official’s hiring or continued employment; and (3) in the case of the
official’s provision of professional or technical services of a type customarily
charged on an hourly or project basis, the official does not perform any work
or services specifically for a principal. OEB 92-26
