Every company and law firm should have an employee handbook to manage employee expectations, guide their conduct and reduce legal risks. The challenges arise in knowing exactly how to prepare and draft these documents, and specifically what type of contractual relationships they may or may not create. In this CLE presentation, employment attorney Frank Martinez discusses the important information that should be included, how to communicate these policies to employees, and how employees must acknowledge these directives. Martinez also reviews the essential handbook procedures for corrective action, progressive discipline, and termination. This course is a must see for all attorneys assisting clients in drafting their employee handbooks, or law firm managers looking to protect their business from potential liabilities.
