The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.
Overview: Broken promises lead to breach of contract claims. Employers use handbooks to show that they have provided valuable information to their employees and that they have been clear in the rules that employees must follow. They are invaluable tools if used correctly. But is your handbook giving employees a legal contract claims they might not otherwise have? How can you avoid this situation?
Why should you Attend: If written properly, handbooks are a valuable tool in the workplace. Governmental agencies, courts and juries look to handbooks to determine your policies and whether you have been fair to your employees.
Handbooks written poorly will inevitably doom you. Poorly written handbooks cause confusion, inconsistency in the workplace, and increased litigation. As the author of a handbook or policy, any ambiguities will be construed against the employer which may nullify your disclaimers. This webinar will teach you to write your handbooks and policies to avoid contractual obligations but at the same time accomplish your purpose of informing employees of your expectations.
