Tonkon Talk Covers Employee Handbook Fundamentals

March 18, 2016
Tonkon Torp Labor & Employment lawyers Clay Creps and Haley Miller Morrison covered employee handbooks in the March 2 Tonkon Talk. During their presentation, they explained why all employers — including small companies and start-ups — need handbooks, which policies are "must haves" under the law, how handbooks can minimize litigation risks, and how to craft a culturally relevant handbook. They also tackled common pitfalls, and discussed navigating multi-jurisdictional policy and legal issues.
Tonkon Torp’s Labor & Employment practice helps a diverse group of Pacific Northwest employers to promote positive employee relations, protect competitive positions, deal with union activity, and defend against or minimize exposure to employment litigation. 

"Tonkon Talks in the Pearl" is a series of lunch-hour presentations hosted by the firm’s Entrepreneurial Services Group. They are held on the first Wednesday of each month at the firm's CENTRL Office location in the Pearl District. The talks provide an overview on legal topics that impact entrepreneurs and startups.
