A Message from the CEAC Secretary, Mary Williams

During this health crisis, many EAC members have requested the contact number for our "Hotline Attorney". 

Bruce Matlock resigned this position last October and this service is now handled by the Law Firm of Scott & Whitehead.  Bruce is still receiving calls, which may cause an unnecessary delay for our members.  

The Employer Hotline offers a call with an attorney from Scott & Whitehead for up to 15 minutes per call at no charge to the member.  A limit of 2 calls per month, and 12 per year, per member.  Members will be required to give the name of their EAC and/or the Region number. 

The Employer Hotline includes a phone call only, not document review.  There are 3 attorneys participating in the Employer Hotline benefit.  Services began January 2nd, 2020.

The new CEAC Hotline flyer is attached.  Employers should call Anita York, Scott & Whitehead, at 1-949-222-0166.

Thank you and stay well,

Mary Williams

CEAC Secretary
