Employee Handbooks, Will Yours Make the Grade? Presented by Vanderpool, Frostick & Nishanian

Employee Handbooks: Will Yours Make the Grade?

Speakers: Kristina Keech Spitler, Esq. and Brendan Cassidy, Esq.

Vanderpool, Frostick & Nishanian, P.C.

Workplace Application: This presentation will help you understand what policies are contained in an effective employee handbook and what policies are in compliance with the law.

Whether you’re creating a brand new handbook or revising your current handbook, ensuring that the Company’s policies contained in your handbook comply with state and federal laws is vital to protecting your Company.  Spending the time to properly craft the policies in your employee handbook can help ensure that they fit your Company’s business needs and do not expose it to liability.  A properly drafted handbook can also provide employers with defenses against common charges brought by employees, such as discrimination and harassment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how federal, state, and local laws can impact your employee handbook and your policies.
  • Learn how an improperly drafted handbook can expose employers to liability, while a properly drafted handbook can help protect employers against liability.
  • Learn how having employees working in different states can affect your employee handbook.
  • Understand the importance of keeping your employee handbook current.
