If written properly, handbooks are a valuable tool in the workplace. Governmental agencies, courts and juries look to handbooks to determine your policies and whether you have been fair to your employees. If poorly written, employee handbooks will inevitably doom you. Poorly written handbooks cause confusion, inconsistency in the workplace, and increased litigation. As the author of a handbook or policy, any ambiguities will be construed against the employer which may nullify your disclaimers.
This webinar by labor and employment law expert Susan Fahey Desmond will provide you vital tips in writing effective and compliant policies and handbooks. These lessons will not only help you avoid contractual obligations but assist you in accomplishing your purpose of informing employees of your expectations.
You'll learn how to draft handbooks that are not contracts. You will understand how to draft policies that are compliant with the National Labor Relations Act. Going further, you will understand the process of drafting mandatory policies. The session is a perfect walk through from page one to the end on how to effectively draft a handbook which meets your needs and is legal and compliant at the same time.
