Announcing CIRMA's Employment Practices Liability Helpline - Effective October 1, 2016
Employment practices law is changing rapidly and is more complex than ever. Effective October 1, 2016, CIRMA’s Liability-Auto-Property (LAP) members will have a new resource for expert advice about employment practices liability. CIRMA has partnered with FordHarrison, the nation’s preeminent law firm specializing in employment and labor law, to provide its LAP members convenient access to legal advice on employment practices via the Helpline program.
“The EPL Helpline is designed to provide municipal and public school officials –- especially those who may not otherwise have direct access to Human Resource services or specialized legal advice --with an expert source of guidance on employment practices,” said David Demchak, President and CEO, CIRMA. The EPL Helpline provides access to one hour of legal advice per month for no charge to CIRMA LAP members. The attorneys at FordHarriosn will respond to CIRMA LAP member questions within one business day. Download the flyer.
