Topic: Understanding the Importance of Employment Agreements and Employee Handbooks

Don’t leave your organization exposed! Monitoring key developments in the law respecting employment agreements and employee handbooks is arguably one of the most important things that all employers can do to protect their organizations.

Employment Agreements: The law relating to employment agreements can be complex and is ever-evolving. This presentation provides a refresher on the basics of employment agreements, while also exploring recent case law containing emerging developments. We further discuss issues such as termination provisions, mitigation, restrictive covenants, exclusionary clauses and unjust dismissal.

Employee Handbooks: We outline for you the do's and don'ts of drafting an effective well-written employee handbook.   Learn what policies must be in your employee handbooks, and what common drafting errors should be avoided at all costs.  We help you protect your organization from future potential liability by having well-drafted policies and procedures that can protect you in a court of law.
