Customer Question
The Rector of our...

The Rector of our Church is also head of the parish council but in law is considered an employee of the parish but members of the council are liable for all issues. Is this correct?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

QLD

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No, I've been asked to join the parish council and doing some homework

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No just what I'm getting into

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
