The Protective Services Team (PST) is a team of experienced principals and lawyers. The PST provides professional advice and legal support to OPC Members according to the provisions set out in the Protective Services Policy for employment-related issues such as:
- Disputes, complaints and investigations
- Discipline: employment (board) or professional (College of Teachers)
- Contract matters
- General employment-related legal advice
This support to individuals neither replaces nor duplicates board insurance coverage.
The Protective Services Consultants are all experienced principals. Often, professional advice from a consultant may resolve the Member’s concern. When necessary, the Protective Services Consultant will refer the matter promptly to an OPC lawyer.
