The text of “The Memo:”
It is addressed to Department of Public Works Employees and it is signed by Lynn Sadosky Director of Public Works dated July 1st, 2009
SUBJECT: Potential Action Against Town
Recently I contacted the
Department Heads have been reminded of the following by the Finance and Administration Office.
In instances where there is a claim or threatened action against the Town the following practice must be adhered to:
Any contact of an employee at the workplace by outside party investigating a claim shall be directed immediately to the Department Head who will immediately pass it on to the Finance/Risk. There should be absolutely no interaction with the individual whether it is lawyer, investigator, or the claimant them self. This applies to General Liability, Auto Liability, Workers Compensation, etc. Any activity such as this could be viewed as insubordination and will be dealt with accordingly.
I wanted to pass on this important information to those of you who may, from time to time, be approached regarding action against the town.
As always, should you have questions regarding this correspondence, please feel free to contact me directly.
