Alexander Hamilton Institute, Inc

Be ready to take appropriate action with the practical, proven solutions you'll find in this manual!

The Alexander Hamilton Institute has been helping executives manage their companies and their careers since 1909. Their publications deal with all aspects of employment law, and are specifically designed to keep managers and executives from making mistakes that could lead to fines and lawsuits. In the age of policy and procedures, the institute provides a useful template for creating an employee manual for your business. This loose-leaf manual and accompanying CD-ROM is up to date and includes the latest legal information on controversial topics such as appearance, performance appraisal documentation, training, discipline, criminal activities, absenteeism, discrimination, harassment, termination and more. Unfortunately, these days it is necessary to consider the legal consequences before taking action. This manual is a great reference for handling employee situations quickly and effectively. Each problem topic is segmented into general problem areas called modules, and each module is divided into easy-tofollow sections and includes the following information: specific problem areas, most common scenarios and solution strategies, supervisory and disciplinary tips, sample policies, prevention strategies, and legal citations. The manual is targeted at managers and owners because every business has more employee problems than problem employees. It is priceless if it can help to prevent mistakes that lead to legal skirmishes. There is even a 30-day no risk, no questions asked, money-back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied!
