Membership Ineligibility

Contractors

Generally, membership is not open to contractors. Contractors, even as "associate" members in the Women of AT&T, could increase AT&T's risks of liability on "common law employee" or "joint employer" issues. This supersedes retiree eligibility.

However, an exception to this rule is made in the case of AT&T employees who have followed their work as AT&T outsources functions and projects. These individuals become, in effect, "former employees" and are therefore eligible to be "associate members" of the ERG, if such a category exists within each organization. If such an outsourcing occurs before a current paid membership expires, the individual may continue that membership until expiration of the paid membership, then should become an "associate member."

Competitors

Membership is not open to employees of telecommunication competitors. This supersedes retiree eligibility.

Individual Never Employed by AT&T

Individuals who have never had an employment relationship with any AT&T company should not be given any form of membership in the organization.
