You’ve got handbook questions, we’ve got expert answers.

Your employee handbook is not only your best people management tool, but it’s also your biggest defense when it comes to employee lawsuits. So it’s only natural if you’re questioning certain sections, or wondering if the way you word something is legally safe.

That’s why we’ve put together a special Ask the Attorney session. Tell us your handbook questions now, and employment lawyer Anniken Davenport will address and answer them live at the webinar on March 25.

This 60-minute Q&A is limited to just 20 people, so reserve your spot now.

No question is a bad question (and it will remain anonymous). So if you’re wondering about a certain section of your handbook, or where to get started, we’re here to help. Some of the most popular topics we get questions on include:

  • Compensation and Benefits
  • Contracts and Condition of Employment
  • Discipline
  • Dress Code and Workplace Culture
  • Drug and Alcohol Policies
  • Labor Laws
  • Employee Leave
  • Social Media and Digital Policies
  • Versioning

In addition to answering your questions, Anniken will walk you through the legally correct way to roll out handbook changes, and share proven techniques that assure every single employee has received, read and acknowledged the latest version.

Best of all, this opportunity costs just $197 and gets right to your specific need. So you’ll spend less time and dollars (thousands of them) to have a lawyer review your entire handbook.
