Why should you attend?

Employee handbooks can be an employer’s best friend or worst enemy. Strong, direct employee handbooks give employers a fantastic first of line of defense and a great go-to guide for most issues that arise in the workplace. Poor employee handbooks, in contrast, can immediately undermine a workplace. So, employers must effectively navigate the complications to develop and maintain a high-quality, dependable, and successful handbook.

Multistate employers need a dynamic and effective multi-state handbook. Every employer who has employees in more than one state automatically faces a myriad of confusing state laws, federal mandates, and legal conflicts that must be addressed in order to work effectively in multiple jurisdictions.

This webinar will offer attendees a tool-box of best practices for developing and maintaining a strong multi-state employee handbook.
