Q: Do I need to hire a lawyer to help me decipher the laws in Indiana about required masks for teachers?
I have been told it will be required periodically for my job as a teacher.
You should not need a lawyer for that. Requirements for schools and teachers would be made public and in common English (no legalese). The Dept. of Education has sources available to you. Go to: https://www.doe.in.gov/news/indiana-department-education-announces-2020-2021-school-year-covid-19-reentry-considerations.
I do not understand why you say that it would be required periodically only, but the information should be easily accessible on the internet. You may need to review the website for your state's Department of Education and also for your city or county, which would publish any additional requirements by industry.
