Developing an Employee Handbook
Technical Assistance: Seminars
Everyone benefits from a work environment where policies, procedures and expectations are clear, but developing effective policies and building a useful employee handbook is not as easy as it sounds!  The policies that you create need to be clear, legally enforceable and kept current, and it would certainly help if those policies made things easier on your supervisors and lead workers instead of the other way around!  How can employers write good policies, enforce them effectively, and keep them current as state and federal laws change?  Find out by joining us for a session on the practical information you need to develop (or rewrite) effective employee policies and handbooks. 
Specific topics will include:
  • Employment at will and exceptions
  • Federal and Oregon civil rights protected classes
  • Work rules
  • Acknowledgements
  • Conduct guidelines
  • Performance expectations
  • Benefits
  • Discipline and discharge
  • Disclaimers
  • Discussion of electronic vs. paper copies
  • Social media policies
  • Making changes
  • Practical examples and tips
The seminar is targeted toward human resources personnel, business owners, managers, and front line supervisors.
