The term “Advisor” generally refers to any individual selected by a Complainant or Respondent to attend meetings, interviews, and similar events, and to provide advice and/or support for the party throughout the proceedings, including during any interview, meeting, investigation, informal resolution, formal hearing, or other event. While a party’s Advisor may also be an attorney, that person’s participation in EOO proceedings must be consistent with their role as Advisor. It is also recommended that an Advisor not be someone who is a witness in the same matter.

Parties have a right to an advisor of their choice. To indicate your selected advisor, please submit an Advisor Designation Form.
