InFORMed Annotated Legal Document with eFormbook
Employee Handbook

Prepared by Pamela Harris

An employee handbook is a critical management and communications tool that serves numerous purposes. Created and used effectively, it can inform managers and employees, guide consistent management, and prevent legal problems. Written and used incorrectly, however, it will be a source of legal claims. On balance, having a handbook is better than forgoing one out of caution. This Employee Handbook InFORMed Annotated Legal Document with eFormbook provides practitioners with invaluable insight into how to effectively draft employee handbooks, as well as detailed annotations outlining the primary sources of applicable law in Minnesota, the many functions of an employee handbook, how to choose the appropriate provisions for an employer/client, how to deal with difficult employment policies and avoid mistakes, as well as what format to use when drafting a handbook. 

The companion eFormbook contains a downloadable document which gives practitioners a head start at creating well-written and beneficial employee handbooks for clients (or their own firms).
