The Staff Council attaches great importance to the provision of adequate and appropriate legal assistance for staff. As a result, the availability of legal resources has been one of the priorities of the Staff Council and has resulted in a significant strengthening of legal advisory services.
In addition, the Staff Council remains continually available to colleagues wishing to consult with them on work-related issues. Advice is provided on options available to them, and assistance is given in seeking justice, whether through informal or formal channels, such as through the provision of legal assistance to contest an administrative decision.
Dues-paying Staff Union members are entitled to two free legal consultations per year from English speaking lawyers on both work-related and non-work-related matters.
