Developing Effective Employee Handbooks: 2023 Critical Issues and Best Practices
October 9 @ 1:00 pm - October 17 @ 10:00 am CDT$150
Employee handbooks are a critical tool in providing important information about your organization to employees. Employee handbooks typically describe what you expect of your employees and what your employees can (should) expect from you. Employee handbooks also provide critical information about your organization and your workplace, and your employees are expected to fit in.
Employee handbooks further formalize the mutual expectations. In delineating these expectations employee handbooks create opportunities and risks. Handbooks provide your organization with the opportunity to enhance the value of its human capital, make your organization more competitive, and improve individual and organizational performance. Conversely, handbooks can impede the achievement of business objectives, increase employment-related liabilities, and reduce managerial prerogatives by making promises or committing to certain procedural safeguards that your organization did not intend to make. As noted in a memorandum from a former General Counsel of the NLRB: “…incorrectly designed employee handbooks can violate the law and have a ‘chilling effect’ on employees’ activities.”
Thus, while your employee handbook provides you with the opportunity to make your workforce more committed and supportive of organizational goals, it can also unfortunately serve as the basis for employees’ legal action and can significantly reduce employees’ commitment to your organization’s success.
Objectives of the Presentation
