The landscape of labor and employment laws and issues that employment counsel, human resource professionals, and business owners face is ever-expanding. A regular or periodic review of employment-related documents, policies, and procedures will help ensure compliance with these laws, and it will help ensure maximum results from an employee relations standpoint. This handbook is intended to assist in identifying and understanding the many important labor and employment issues that have the potential to create significant legal and practical problems if not promptly and effectively addressed. Topics covered include hiring issues, affirmative action, employment agreements, child labor laws, termination, reductions in force, compliance with the National Labor Relations Act, and workers’ compensation. This handbook also includes a sample employment agreement and employee handbook.
