Seminars and Webinars: Employee Handbooks

When was the last time you reviewed and updated your business's employee handbook? 

If your answer is, "I don’t know," "Longer than a year ago," or "What's an employee handbook and why do we need one?" then we need to talk.

The reality is that you need a customized and updated handbook that documents the guidelines and expectations between your organization and your employees. If you do not pay careful attention to your handbook's contents, you might violate the law, alienate employees, and invite costly and time consuming lawsuits.

Lucky for you, you have two upcoming opportunities to hear me speak on this important topic.

On Thursday, March 23, at 8:00 am, we are holding our next Wickens Workshop, during which our entire team of employment lawyers will lead a panel discussion on Employee Handbook Essentials. This in-person only and free event will take place at the Emerald Event Center (at the Residence Inn by Marriott), 33040 Just Imagine Drive, Avon, Ohio 44011. Space is limited. To secure your spot, register here.

Never fear if you're not in the N.E. Ohio. On Wednesday, February 15, at 4:00 pm, I'm presenting a free webinar in conjunction with Start A Brewery and Craft Beer Professionals: Crafting Your Craft Brewery's Employee Handbook. While this webinar is specifically geared for craft breweries, much of what I'll cover is applicable to any small businesses. You can watch on the Craft Beer Professionals YouTube channel here, where it will also be archived after the event for future viewings.
