BoardLaunch - Employment Law: What Every Board Should Know to Protect Their Organization

Participants will learn how to establish policies and procedures to keep your organization in legal compliance, strategies to avoid discriminatory practices, examine record keeping best practices and the important role the employee handbook plays in maintaining legal compliance among other topics.
