Avoiding Pitfalls with Employee Handbooks

 

Employers often make one of the following mistakes with regard to employee handbooks: (1) they don’t have them at all; (2) they simply copy another employer’s handbook; or (3) they don’t update them. This informational meeting will discuss the pitfalls of not having an employee handbook and of copying someone else’s handbook. In addition, in light of several legal developments, there will be a discussion of a number policies your firm’s employee handbook should have and should not have -- and why.
