Slash All Unnecessary Promises In Your Employee Handbook!

The Golden Rule about Promises in an Employee Handbook...When you consider what to promise your employees, hold back on any and all promises unless you really feel a certain promise is absolutely essential and you are 100% certain you can always deliver on the promise. If you can't, delete it from your Employee Handbook unless it is required by law.

Employees Gambling At Work?

If you are a sports fan, professional or collegiate, you know what time of the year it is - the NFL started on September 8, 2016 with Carolina vs. Denver; in a few weeks, Major League Baseball will start its Playoff Season with a trip to the World Series; College Football is in full force and the National Hockey League will begin shortly. What does this mean to an Employer? An Employer with a "blind eye to sports" risks running into a lot of potential problems and issues with its Employee complement.

Legislative Update: Illinois Mandates Child Bereavement Leave

The death of a child is a very traumatic event for a parent. The grieving process is a difficult one. Federal law does not provide a leave of absence for this purpose. Most employers only provide employees a three day period for bereavement/funeral leave for the death of a child.

Pokémon Go - an Employer Dilemma?

Pokémon Go has taken the United States and the rest of the world by storm with an estimated 75 million downloads in the first three (3) weeks of its release. For the uninitiated (like the author), Pokémon Go is an augmented reality game, where users try to capture, train, and battle digitally animated creatures on their mobile devices. The author has more than enough trouble battling real life creatures than delving into animated adversaries!
