    If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that companies need to be agile. However, when it comes to
    Employee Handbooks, changing them can be quite a chore. How do you keep your handbook on pace
    with the changing times? What policies are prone to change heading into 2021? What are some of the
    common pitfalls found in handbooks? Join Mark Adams, Director of Compliance with the Employers
    Association of the NorthEast as he delves into these questions during this 90 minute webinar.
