Legal Services

We Hope You Never Need Us, But When You Do, We've Got You Covered
GAE Legal Services is known throughout the education community for ensuring that our members’ rights are protected.
Hundreds of lawsuits are filed against education employees every year, and your best defense is knowing your legal rights. For instance, who would you call if you had an unfair dismissal hearing such as a non-renewal or termination? What if you're caught in the middle of a contract dispute or civil rights and constitutional claims? As a member of GAE, you would first call us. Note: Email communications sent to GAE Legal Services does not create an attorney-client relationship.

I want everyone to be a part of the union. I believe there is power in numbers and if someone is having an issue, I want to make sure they're okay and feel supported the way I have been supported.
