Course Description

This program was recorded on May 30, 2018

This presentation addresses issues surrounding employee handbooks and policy manuals. We cover parts required by many state and federal laws, such as Equal Employment Opportunity and anti-harassment policies, and the use of handbooks to create affirmative contract rights like at-will status and arbitration. We also discuss pitfalls practitioners can encounter while drafting manuals and other evolving issues, including the National Labor Relations Board’s position on handbooks in non-union workplaces.
