Editor’s Note: Among all the paperwork involved in starting a new job, an employee handbook is something that we are all familiar with. It outlines what you should expect, what the rules and procedures are, even when your holidays are. However, on an international level, do employee handbooks differ? What adjustments should be made to address current technology advancements? This On Demand Seminar evaluates a familiar subject with a new perspective.
International Implications of Employee Handbooks
Presented by Clifford Hammond, partner with Nemeth Law P.C.
The top 10 items that should be included in all employee handbooks are detailed in the recently released On Demand Seminar, “International Implications of Employee Handbooks,” presented by Clifford Hammond, partner with Nemeth Law P.C. The seminar, produced by GlobalBusinessProfessor.com and GlobalAutoIndustry.com, is applicable to all companies with employee handbooks, and specifically addresses issues concerning the international automotive industry.
Hammond asserts that, as the workplace becomes more technologically advanced, the employee handbook is even more important to doing business. He states that the handbook is designed to inform employees of the employers’ expectations, comply with all laws and customs of each country where the company has employees and ensure that the company does not miss any opportunities. Hammond discusses how intellectual property should be addressed in the handbook to protect confidential design strategies and trade secrets and he recommends the most effective use of the handbook to ensure its validity and reliability.
Clifford Hammond focuses his practice on employment and labor law counseling and litigation. Areas of particular interest include the National Labor Relations Act, Michigan Employment Relations Commission, union avoidance and dispute resolution. Nemeth Law P.C. emphasizes a collaborative approach to client service in the labor and employment field, and is devoted to preventing, resolving and litigating employment disputes.
