Getting It Write: Hot Topics in School Employee Handbooks

In a lively and interactive presentation, Sara Goldsmith Schwartz will outline the key issues for an independent school that either (a) has never implemented an employee handbook, (b) is considering replacing the employee handbook in existence, or (c) is ready to update its employee handbook for legal compliance and best practices. Sara will provide a model table of contents and offer practical suggestions for keeping an independent school’s employee handbook updated and current.
