Is It Time To Scrap Your Employee Handbook?

October 26, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Too many employers spend hours putting together their company handbook without first undertaking a thoughtful analysis of the handbook’s objectives, possible unintended consequences, or even what is actually required to be in the book. This approach can be a formula for poor morale and expensive, time consuming law suits. The decision to have an employee handbook must carry with it the commitment to having it “done right”. A properly drafted employee handbook can be the cornerstone of positive human relations and pro-active legal compliance.

This seminar offers a unique “reset” on the issue and explores the pros and cons of having a company handbook as well as an essential review of policies which should be considered and, perhaps more importantly, avoided.

Questions explored include:

  • Determining your company’s objectives – why do we have a handbook?
  • Are there policies my company must have in writing?
  • How do we best address the new Paid Family Leave law, FMLA, disability and workers compensation?
  • What are the top 10 policies we must get right?
  • When will my current handbook do more harm than good?
