Electronic Employee Handbooks:
Benefits, Risks and Opportunities

Electronic Handbook

If your employee handbook is still an actual book, you're living in the paper past.

Converting to a digital handbook will cut costs, make updating easier and – most importantly – erase many of the legal dangers associated with paper handbooks. Plus, an e-handbook helps you prove that you trained employees on your policies and what they should do to report harassment, working off the clock and other HR headaches.

But e-handbooks involve more than just transferring written documents into a database. One wrong move can actually inject a host of new legal risks:

  • Making the conversion
  • Getting signatures as verification of at-will status
  • Announcing changes
  • Posting on the web or an intranet
  • Password management to track access for later use in a lawsuit
  • And more!

On Wednesday, April 10, discover the best practical and legally smart strategies with Electronic Employee Handbooks: Benefits, Risks and Opportunities. Your trainer, attorney Anniken Davenport, has literally written the book on this subject, Bullet-Proof Your Employee Handbook.

Plus, you'll learn about the potential legal time bombs lurking in the pages of your handbook.
