Employee handbooks are more than a collection of rules for employees and should be a staple for any business.  A properly drafted, clear handbook can prevent liability and be the best defense to protect employers against claims for discrimination, wrongful termination, and retaliation (provided the employer actually follows the policies in the handbook).  

During this 1.5 hour session, employment law attorney Elizabeth Semler will discuss the key provisions to include in an employee handbook, legal concepts implicated by specific handbook provisions, and logistics for introducing handbooks and handbook amendments.
