How to Effectively Draft an Employee Handbook in Illinois


Created on June 20, 2019




An employee handbook is an overview of the policies and procedures of a business, and ideally reflects the culture of that business. A handbook  establishes the business' relationship with the employee and is the company's chance to lay a foundation for a positive workplace environment. With ever-changing workplace laws, businesses have a responsibility to protect their employees' rights and stay at the forefront of legal change and development. A good employee handbook outlines what the business expects from its workers and the business's responsibilities to its employees. This program will provide an engaging discussion on how to create an employee handbook that establishes a strong business foundation, maintains a healthy workplace environment, and limits the risk of liability.
