Risk Management is one of the many services offered by the Mississippi Association of Supervisors Insurance Trust (MASIT) to its members.


MASIT will be conducting Risk Management training which will be very important in helping your employees, and therefore this program, reduce risks and losses in highly litigious areas of liability.

Dates and locations for upcoming workshops will be announced here and member counties will be notified.

One of our goals is to provide informative and educational training that is relevant to the work you perform every day.  In a broader view, MASIT’s goal is also to lower the county’s liability exposure with your road workers and the public and reducing employees’ personal risk. 

The 2024 MASIT Risk Management Conference will be held August 20-22, 2024.  Stay tuned for more information.

Sample Policies

MASIT Members can request sample employee handbook, law enforcement and jail policies by submitting a written request on Board letterhead to  Your request should include a contact person for follow up questions, the plan for educating employees on policy changes, a sample acknowledgement form for employees, and the date that the policies will be adopted. We recommend that member's review and update policies at least once per year to remain compliant with State and Federal laws and regulations.

HR Hotline and Employment Practices Services

MASIT HR Hotline

Offering valuable member services provides a benefit to both the Trust and our members, and for this reason we are thrilled to offer our HR Hotline.

The HR Hotline is a legal resource that assists members with time-sensitive employment-related questions by facilitating access to employment attorneys via email.  Contact the HR Hotline for clear and concise answers to your pressing employment law questions, directly from a team of experienced HR experts. The dedicated team of internal employment law experts delivers easy-to-understand interpretations and explanations of federal and state employment regulations and compliance responsibilities in response to your specific scenarios, empowering you to manage the situation with confidence. Responses are provided in writing, often with a 72-hour or less turnaround time.  The HR Hotline is available Monday through Friday from 7:30 am until 6:30 pm.

Why use the HR Hotline?

  • Simple submission - Email your query with pertinent details such as topic, jurisdiction, and question directly to our team of in-house experts right from the HR Hero platform.

  • Avoid HR fines and penalties - Reduce the risk of potential violations, fines, and costly suits with our comprehensive analysis and interpretations of regulatory requirements specific to your question and situation.

  • Timely answers - Email your questions and receive detailed answers in as fast as one business day, and no more than three days.

  • Safeguard employees and your organization - Get the answers you need to protect employees’ safety and rights, while also adhering to laws and guidelines and acting in the best interest of the County.

  • Thorough explanations - Our expert team not only addresses your question but also delivers extensive answers complete with pertinent resources and references, ensuring a comprehensive and thorough response.

  • Act with confidence - Make well-informed decisions regarding delicate employment law issues by gaining a clear understanding of federal and state requirements, empowering you to skillfully traverse the complex and often complicated aspects of HR compliance.

There is a great deal of value in documenting employment related decision-making.   Current trends have demonstrated that regulators and plaintiff attorneys are increasingly focused on the process leading to a decision rather than just the decision itself. 

The HR Hotline is offered on a voluntary basis and is intended to supplement and not replace the legal advice of your Board Attorney and/or your HR Department.  The HR Hotline is yet another layer of protection for your county and we recommend that each member's HR decisions are vetted via the HR hotline.
