Southeastern NY Library Resources Council (Southeastern or the Council) retains an attorney to offer Southeastern and its members timely input on human resources, intellectual property, digital rights management, vendor contracts, first amendment, civil rights, employment law, and other legal issues that can impact library operations.
Before completing the form, members should check the information-rich Recently Asked Questions (RAQs) on the Western New York Library Resources Council (WNYLRC) website. Another member may have already asked the same question! Schools or public libraries must check with your library systems before submitting an inquiry since your system may be best positioned to answer your question.
For immediate HR-related needs with personnel, please provide minimal information on this form and select Immediate in the time sensitivity box. Be ready to supply more details and relevant paperwork when you receive a call from the attorney’s office. For other less urgent non-personnel HR matters, your question will be processed in the same manner as all other “Ask the Lawyer” questions.
