The problem with self-made, borrowed or downloaded employee handbooks is that they rely on you, the employer, to update them. If you miss even one new policy change, you’re leaving yourself open to being sued.

Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) July 19, 2012
CEDR Solutions, the nation’s leading provider of best-in-class, individually customized employee handbooks for medical and dental offices, announced today it will be hosting a free, live webinar on Friday, July 27 from 1-2pm PST. Titled “The Worst Handbook Ever Written,” the webinar is open to practices of all sizes and specialties, and will provide real-life examples of common illegal or improperly written employment policies that employers mistakenly adopt or fail to update. By the end of the webinar, viewers will be able to identify these problem policies in their employee handbook if they exist, and address them. To register for the free webinar, please visit http://www.medicalemployeehandbook.com.
The 60-minute informational webinar will be presented by CEDR Solutions’ CEO and Co-Founder Paul Edwards. During the webinar, Edwards will use a combination of live video feed and slides to keep viewers engaged. There will also be a live chat feature available so viewers can submit questions and be answered in real time.
The webinar will cover which employment policies frequently get employers into trouble, and why, including:
- Breaks and Meal Periods
- Continuing Education Pay and Seminars
- Privacy in the Work Place
- Password Policies
- And more
“With the Internet, it’s easier than ever to self-make or download an employee handbook template and think you’re protected,” said Edwards. “But the problem with those self-made, borrowed or downloaded employee handbooks is that they carry forward existing problems and rely on you, the employer, to update them. If you miss even one new policy change, you’re leaving yourself open to being sued.”
To register for the free webinar, please visit http://www.medicalemployeehandbook.com. Space is limited to 250 attendees, so interested parties are encouraged to sign up early to ensure their spot.
For business owners or office managers unhappy with or uncertain about their handbook, CEDR offers a comprehensive evaluation that determines the handbook’s ability to protect its owner from litigation. Be sure to mention the code “Worst Handbook” when scheduling to receive the handbook evaluation for free (originally a $299 value).
