10 Reasons to Have an Employee Handbook - and Update It!
Guest Speaker: Lola Kakes, Effortless HR

This presentation is to help the busy business owner understand the need for a company handbook.  If you have more than a few employees , it's a good idea to create an employee handbook that clearly explains your workplace policies. The benefits of having an employee handbook are many: Every employee receives the same information about the rules of the workplace; your employees will know what you expect from them (and what they can expect from you); and you'll buy yourself valuable legal protection if an employee later challenges you in court.

Presented by Lola Kakes, Owner and CEO of EffortlessHR, an  on-line HR Department for small to mid-sized businesses.
