Creating Your Employee Handbook - Webinar Workshop with Fisher Phillips

There Has Never Been a Better Time to Prepare an Employee Handbook!

Why is it important have an employee handbook? If you have attended one of our employment law seminars/webinars over the years, you know that as we discuss various employment issues, the one constant we always come back to is your dealership's policy. The best way to establish consistent policies is to prepare an employee handbook.

The benefits of having an employee handbook are many; an employee handbook can set the tone for a business and provides a vehicle to clearly explain your workplace policies. Employee handbooks make for better workplaces because employees know what to expect and what is expected of them. An employee handbook ensures every employee receives the same information about the rules of the workplace and it provides valuable legal protection if an employee later challenges you in court.

It is important that your employee handbook is tailored for your specific dealership reflecting your policies and procedures. One size does not fit all when it comes to your employee handbook.

The problem:  Preparation of an employee handbook can be a daunting, time-consuming, complex process. more than 50% of the employers who begin the process of developing an employee handbook never complete the task. Not anymore!

The Employee Handbook Webinar Workshop:  June 19, 2018, 1-3pm

OADA, in conjunction with Fisher Phillips - Cleveland, is offering a structured program designed to walk the dealership "step by step" through the employee handbook development process. Your handbook will be:

This program is a two-part process:

Step #1 - The Handbook

Prior to the webinar, dealers will receive a prototype employee handbook customized specifically for dealerships and is compliant with Ohio law.

Cost is $1,000.00 (remitted prior to webinar)

Step #2 - Legal Review & Consultation

The hardest part of assembling an employee handbook is not only determining that your dealership's policies and procedures comply with state and federal law but that your policies and procedures are accurately reflected in your employee handbook.

Cost is $600 (must complete option 1).

The total cost for both steps of the process, and preparation of a tailored, legally-compliant handbook within three months is $1,600, a discount from the Fisher Phillips' regular non-OADA member rate of $2,250.

This program will provide the dealership with an electronic version of the handbook that can be printed and copied or posted on an internal intranet.

Please remember, with a unique program such as this, if a dealership has a special policy or rule it wants reviewed or requests legal advice beyond the scope of handbook preparation, additional charges will apply. Also if a dealer has facilities in other states and would want this handbook to apply to those dealerships, applicable state laws would need to be incorporated. Fisher Phillips can provide this service for an additional charge.
