Learn how to update your employee handbook to stay in compliance with the latest federal developments and national trends.

Is your employee handbook up to date with the latest legal changes? Even if you think it is, you need to make sure your policies don’t unintentionally create a binding contract with employees—one that could jeopardize their “at will” status and open you up to devastating lawsuits.

All employers should have well-drafted employee handbooks. However, those handbooks should be updated at least annually to ensure that they are in compliance with recent federal, state and local laws that have been passed as well as with important court decisions that could impact your organization. Attend this live webinar to better understand important protections that your employee handbook needs to contain to best protect you in 2018. Learn what recent legal issues require revisions to your employee handbook.
