Your employment policy manual is a crucial management tool for sharing essential workplace rules. But getting those rules wrong can turn the tool into a weapon employment lawyers wield against your organization in court. Updating your handbook now is more important than ever. 

This informative HR Webinar will outline for you the dos and don'ts of drafting an effective well-written Employment Policy Manual. We will explain the importance of a good employment policy manual. Firstly, it’s essential for smooth operations. It should be the go-to authority for policies. Secondly, it’s critical for more than new hire training. It expresses formal policies.

Learn best practices for writing policies, procedures, and supporting documentation to help you develop logical and easy-to-understand documents.
