2009 carries “...the possibility of the most sweeping HR-related changes in 30 years.”
– The Society for Human Resource Management

As if you didn’t have enough worries in today’s tumultuous economy, the ABA Journal says employment attorneys are having a field day with the nation’s recent rash of layoffs.

“All of a sudden, we really exploded in the latter part of the year,” Dennis Brown of Littler Mendelson told the Journal. Billings at his firm rose 20% in November and 23% in December.

With 2009 almost guaranteed to create more changes in HR policy and law than in the entire eight years of the Bush administration, the new Obama administration has added to the tumult with a stop-it-now! halt to pending regulations. It appears HR is about to take a sharp turn toward the unknown. 

What’s your best defense? That depends.

Your employee handbook can be an invaluable organizational tool … or an employment lawsuit waiting to happen. Policies and procedures that made sense in 2008 may soon put you in legal jeopardy.
