Keep your company protected with a foolproof employee handbook.

Judges, administrative agencies, and juries have come to expect even the least sophisticated and smallest of employers to have an employee handbook. Those same judges, administrative agencies, and especially juries, will look at any potential case with disfavor if your organization does not have an employee handbook. A well-drafted employee handbook provides an easy way for the employer to disseminate information to employees, contains objective rules and criteria for unbiased employment decisions, promotes consistency and helps avoid misunderstandings, gives credibility to employment decisions, and is an easy way to comply with various notice requirements. During this topic, we will discuss the basics of employee handbooks/policy manuals including addressing the topics of whether or not to have a handbook at all and, if you have a handbook, how it should be provided to employees; the legal landscape affecting the contents of employee handbooks; mandatory and recommended policies; and acknowledgements. Mr. Garland will also discuss employee handbook traps for employers.
