Custom Employee Handbook
With employment disputes increasingly finding their way into our nation's news headlines, the importance of defining clear policies and procedures for your employees has never been greater. Employment issues are among the most frequently litigated in the courts today, while local, state and federal laws in this area are constantly evolving. Many current trends in the law favor the employee; thus, a clearly-articulated employee policy and procedure manual can prove particularly helpful in maintaining employee morale, avoiding confusion and minimizing the risk of expensive litigation.

To this end, BTA's Legal Department provides members with practical advice and guidance as you draft and refine your company's policies. For more substantive assistance, BTA Legal can also prepare a customized employee policy and procedure manual specifically for your company. To find out more about this valuable benefit at member-advantage pricing, please call BTA General Counsel Robert Goldberg at (800) 869-6688.

Rates vary, but typically run from $750 to $900 for a custom Employee Policy and Procedure manual.
