Chamber taking orders for 2011 Employee Handbook
The Georgia Chamber of Commerce has recently published the 2011 Model Policies and Forms for Georgia Employers, your one-stop guide to assembling a comprehensive employee handbook. It features necessary forms, sample policies and commentary so you know what to do, how to do it, and why. When your employees know your rules and expectations, you limit miscommunication and keep things running smoothly.
This publication will help you answer questions such as:
Do I need to grant paid time off for jury duty?
What paperwork is required for family and medical leave?
What should I include in my bereavement leave policy?
Which employers are covered by the Pregnancy Leave Act?
What should I include in my vacation and holiday leave policies?
This manual is regularly priced at $120 for Georgia Chamber members. However, when you purchase the Model Policies and Forms and its companion publication, Georgia Human Resources Manual, by May 26 you will receive both books for $126.40. That’s $66 off the regular price!
In addition to getting the books, you’ll also get free digital copies of the publications so you can easily personalize and print policies and forms as needed.
