Employee Handbooks and Personnel Policies

April 23 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

$270 – $295
Protect your organization from employment litigation and costly legal fees by updating or drafting your employee policy manual. This workshop will guide you through what should and should not be included in your employee manual.

You will then break up into groups to review your own organization’s manual or discuss creating one. In either case, you’ll have the unique opportunity to collaborate with others in the group and benefit from input from an attorney. Due to the nature of the workshop, space is limited – so register today!
