Track: Employment Law & Legislation

Does your Employee Handbook read just as you want it to? Does it 'say' anything you did not intend? Why have one? Courts have repeatedly found employment policies to create implied contracts, defeat at-will employment, and impose other unintended consequences upon employers. Join this interactive program as we compare and contrast the benefits of Employee Handbooks; review best practices and pitfalls to avoid in developing and updating them; and consider some of the latest legal interpretations.
