Good Morning Everyone,
I have a couple of questions. For the past year I have served as the "De facto", or perhaps more appropriately, "Interim"chemical hygiene officer at a small Liberal Arts college in Newton MA. I put together a CHP, that has been minimally implemented. For my services as CHO I receive a stipend of $1500 per year, with no course load reduction (I am an Associate Professor with a 4/4 load). My questions are: 1) Is the compensation fair?; 2)What is my liability, if any, or should I consult a Massachusetts attorney with this question?
Thanks for any feedback and best regards,


Mario G. Garc=EDa-R=EDos, Ph. D.
Associate Professor of Biology and Chemistry
