Legal Assistance

Legal Services

While liability insurance is a first-rate benefit of Association membership, members rarely need it. When they need advice and assistance, members need people.

Our Association provides comprehensive legal assistance for a wide range of employment matters such as performance evaluations; discipline; nonrenewals, lay-offs, and dismissals; and daily problems among faculty and staff or with the administration. Our UniServ Directors are trained and experienced in employment law, contracts, school board policy, and job-related legal issues. Our attorneys are trained and experienced in public education law and labor law; some specialize in criminal law as well. CEA is the only public education employee organization in Colorado that provides this comprehensive legal services program.

We have people there for you:

  • Association Representatives in schools and work sites;
  • Local Association Presidents;
  • Full-time UniServ Directors; and
  • Experienced Association staff.

These people can help you resolve problems quickly, informally or formally. And if you need help beyond this, CEA’s staff attorneys are highly experienced in labor and education law. Your wisest protection is not job-related insurance. It’s your Association membership.
