The Employee Handbook is an essential tool for businesses of all sizes – it provides guidance to employees about workplace expectations, gives managers a means of assessing employee conduct and job performance, and importantly, the Employee Handbook is critical in mitigating risk… including litigation risk. The Employee Handbook is the employer’s tool for managing employees. This seminar takes a look at some of the do’s and don'ts of crafting an effective employee handbook, including essential policies your handbook should contain, highlights recent changes in Washington’s legal landscape (such as the new paid sick leave law and local ordinances), and examines policy pit falls and common-sense approaches that can help protect your business.
