Legal Services

Most education employees go through their entire careers without facing disciplinary or legal action.

But if problems do come up, FEA members can access the best and most comprehensive free legal program of any professional association in the state — covering every aspect of their personal, professional and organizational lives.

FEA’s Legal Services Program protects the employment rights of members with both emergency and long-term legal services ranging from legal representation on employment matters like disciplinary actions and certification issues, to complex legal challenges.

In addition to FEA’s Legal Services Progam, you have basic rights on the job as a union member and may have additional rights spelled out in your union’s contract or Collective Bargaining Agreement.

FEA Legal manages all aspects of the legal services programs, but all FEA legal services are initiated at the local level. If you have questions or need legal assistance please first contact your local union:

Your local union will then contact FEA Legal Services.
