Employee handbooks provide crucial policy guidance for both employees and employers, from outlining benefits and procedures to defining conduct and discipline.

But your handbook is also your best defense against costly litigation. The language you use, and the provisions you include, can make or break a lawsuit -- and may even stop disputes before they arise.

Let nationally recognized HR trainer-author Margaret Morford and employment law attorney Troy Foster show you how to shield your organization from legal danger. Participate in the all-new HR Hero audio conference, Employee Handbook Essentials: 5 Ways You Can Avoid Litigation.

In just 90 minutes, you'll learn:

  • Legal dangers faced by organizations without handbooks -- including real-life examples and scenarios
  • The 5 essential components for transforming your handbook into a powerful weapon against litigation:
    - Crucial disclaimers, including an explanation that the handbook isn't a contract and that it can be amended at any time
    - An easy-to-follow description of your organization's benefits, and how to determine if you should modify policies to reflect new family structures -- such as domestic partner benefits
    - A detailed listing of critical policies such as harassment, discrimination, attendance, leave, holidays, wage payment schedule, appearance codes, rules on Internet use, cell phone usage, smoking, etc.
    - A clear explanation of your organization's disciplinary procedures
    - An acknowledgment page for employees to sign to show they've read
    the book
  • Information that should NOT be included in a handbook, such as detailed information important only to certain subgroups

  • How to communicate the handbook's contents, as well as any changes that you may make from time to time
  • Other practical problems that arise when you need to revise the handbook
