M. Government/School Boards General Liability Insurance Policy

In the event that an insurance adjuster requests a statement from a teacher concerning an incident which involved the teacher, the teacher, in every case, should be advised by one or both of the parties (employer and/or insurance company) that no statement should be issued until the teacher involved has had an opportunity to contact the NLTA for consultation and possible legal assistance. If a teacher is not so advised before giving a statement, then the NLTA maintains that the employer should not have the right to use the statements in any disciplinary or other proceedings provided for under the Collective Agreement.
