Like most employers, you probably have an employee handbook, but when did you last review and update its contents? Are you sure your handbook complies with current laws? Will your handbook stand up to increased scrutiny by the DOL, EEOC, OSHA, or NLRB? Will your handbook get you into trouble in your next employee lawsuit? Employment laws and regulations are ever-changing which means every few years (or more frequently!), you need to dust off that handbook and give it a proper evaluation.

The Illinois Chamber is pleased to invite you to this timely presentation on updating your employee handbooks. Join us and attorney Noah Frank of SmithAmundsen as he guides you through effectively using an employee handbook and identify top employee handbook mistakes that could cost you.
