Why You Should Attend:
Local government staff, agents, and politicians will encounter difficult constituents during their career. Sometimes, they will take issue with their local government due to a ticket, notice, bylaw, letter or, surprisingly, even a personality. 😁
At times, you may encounter an individual who will decide to take matters into their own hands. Despite your best efforts, they will harass staff through communications and through a court process. In this webinar, Alex Mouret will discuss best practices to protect yourself and staff from vexatious litigants.
