Our in-house counsel may not serve as members’ own legal counsel and may not assert attorney-client privilege over any information communicated to them. Therefore, at any time members need to discuss sensitive legal matters, develop documents related to a specific legal issue or respond to any sort of inquiry, complaint or suit, they will be referred to private legal counsel. Because only lawyers may provide legal counsel, members should contact our in-house counsel or other competent legal counsel to discuss their response options, including referral to private legal counsel, at any time questions involve the rights of the employer, its employees, applicants or former employees.
