The NFA provides guidance and may provide legal services to NFA members in employment-related matters. Each NFA Member in good standing shall have access to legal defense in cases related to teaching, research, and administrative responsibilities and obligations and grievances at institutions of the Nevada System of Higher Education. NFA can help with tenure denial, reconsideration, grievance, adverse annual evaluations, Chapter 6, Chapter 2, pay equity, sexual harassment, discrimination, and other workplace issues.
NFA members may obtain legal defense support depending upon the case’s merit and parameters. Legal defense guidance is limited to consultation with the chapter legal defense representative or committee, which may intervene to resolve faculty issues through informal means. For cases requiring further assistance, the chapter legal defense representative may apply to the state NFA Legal Defense Coordinator. The state Legal Defense Coordinator may refer the case to the state NFA Legal Defense Evaluator and may approve consultation with a licensed attorney retained by the NFA.
