Workplace Application:
This session will provide you with the tools to be able to revise your handbooks to eliminate express or implied contractual obligations. 

Repeated on Tuesday at 7:00 a.m.

Employee handbooks can be powerful tools for communicating policies to employees and supervisors and administering employee relations; however, they also can be a source of employment law liability. Weitzman will offer helpful advice on deciding what to include in (and delete from) your employee handbook and will discuss cutting-edge policies you should consider adding or revising, including those involving e-mail, voicemail, blogging, social networking, cell/camera phone and electronic communication policies; weapons and dress code policies; confidentiality policies; and many other workplace regulations.
