Press Release: Strike a Balance Between Workplace Legalities & Realities
SGIA Web conference focuses on personnel policies that protect, strengthen and work for your business.

Fairfax, Virginia ˜ In its newest Web conference, "Avoid Legal Snares: Employee Handbooks & Hiring" (December 6, 2005; 11:00 amˆNoon EST), SGIA covers the legal issues employers must address as they hire staff and create personnel policies.

"When you don't understand the nuances of employment laws and regulations, you open the business up to liability issues, including lawsuits," said SGIA Government Affairs Associate Danielle Waterfield, Esq., who will lead the conference.

We're also supplying sample verbiage for job offer letters, employment applications and affirming the 'at-will' status of an employee."

SGIA has obtained approval for continuing education credits for this session for use towards PHR and SPHR recertification through the Human Resource Certification Institute, and every session participant will receive a certificate of completion.

As with all SGIA Web conferences, one registration fee covers training for as many staff as can access a single computer and phone line. Register online at or call 888.385.3588; cost is $79 ($149 non-members).
