Cabinet Member Legal Services
The Council’s legal service for Cabinet Members was developed to provide assistant and deputy superintendents with access to an attorney who will act as a legal advisor, free-of-charge, in the following matters:
General Employment Questions
Retirement Planning/Post Retirement
New Administrators: The Council will represent Cabinet Members and provide advice regarding initial employment agreements.
Contract Reviews/Renewals: The Council will review contracts to ensure consistency with state law and regulation and to identify out-of-date clauses that may jeopardize rights, or to identify benefits that would be restructured based on current trends, new laws or changing personal situations. The Council will assist in memorializing any changes to the contract, negotiated by the Cabinet Member.
The Council’s in-house legal service offers legal representation and guidance regarding many of the important issues that Cabinet Members face.
