ASEA Legal Services are significant benefit of membership. From time to time, ASEA members will need advice and assistance with matters affecting their employment. In addition, as a member of ASEA, after six months, you can receive a simple Will, Power of Attorney, and Health Care Directive for you and your spouse. We are happy to provide these services free of charge.
Typically, ASEA’s attorneys will assist members in the following areas:
• Advising members on matters relating to personal and employment issues.
• Representing members in instances involving on-the-job injuries (State Employee Injury Compensation Trust Fund claims). Representation is limited to controversies presenting legal issues.
• Representing members in termination appeals to the State Personnel Board.
• Representing members before the State Ethics Commission.
• Representing members before the State Board of Adjustment.
• Assisting members who seek to obtain departmental accommodations under the Americans With Disabilities Act.
• Writing letters concerning personal legal matters.
• Reviewing documents including leases and contracts.
In most cases, ASEA attorneys can prepare a simple Last Will and Testament and certain other related legal documents for ASEA members. Under no circumstances will ASEA be responsible for legal or other expenses incurred to third parties by a member. ASEA reserves the right to decline representation on any legal matter.
