CASE BOARD OF DIRECTORS UPDATE
Become a CASE Local Representative. In addition to your all-volunteer CASE Board of Directors, CASE Members benefit from another corps of dedicated volunteers – our Local Representatives. Local Reps are the eyes and ears of CASE in the workplace and help us identify and extinguish small brush fires before they become raging infernos. Local Reps are also the first friendly face in the workplace (virtual or in-person) welcoming newly hired Attorneys, ALJs, Deputy Labor Commissioners, and Graduate Legal Assistants to state service and to CASE. Trainings are held throughout the year. To learn more and to apply, visit the CASE Website
Don’t Forget About the Membership Recruitment Incentive Program. To encourage all members to help us expand our influence and explain the individual and collective benefits of CASE Membership, the Board last fall established the Membership Recruitment Incentive Program. if you recruit a new CASE Member and are listed as the referring member on their application, you’ll receive $100. The top recruiter in each quarter will receive a bonus payment as well.The referral name must be listed on the new member’s application at the time of submission and incentives are paid out quarterly. Our online membership application is easy for you to share and easy for your new coworkers (or even not so new!) to complete. Find it here.

Protecting Your Rights. Any time you are called to answer questions, the answer to which might lead to discipline, you have the right to have a representative present. What should you do if someone is asking you questions that give you cause for concern? CASE members – and only members – can call CASE for consultation before the questioning starts, bring a CASE representative with them to the meeting, or ask to take a break and seek consultation if questions start in the midst of a meeting with a supervisor or manager. You also have the right to know the subject of any potentially investigative meeting before it begins. Don’t go it alone! Call CASE at (800) 699-6533 or email firstname.lastname@example.org any time you have concerns.
