Webinar-- Employee Handbooks -- Do's and Don'ts
An employee handbook can be a great tool to orient new employees and to communicate key policies to both new and current employees. A good handbook will help to establish consistent practices, offer guidance to employees and managers and provide the employer with significant help against labor and employment litigation. A poorly written or out-of-date handbook can hurt more than it helps, though. Join us for this 75-minute intermediate level webinar to learn:
- Why every company should have an employee handbook
- How to develop an effective employee handbook
- What policies should you include in your handbook
- What you should leave out of your handbook
- The proper language to use to keep you out of trouble
- Best practices for communicating and distributing your handbook
- How to communicate your policies
- When and how to revise policies
Register here for the webinar. The presentation slides will be posted on the UBA website the day before the webinar.
