Sponsored by the Capitol Region Council of Governments (CRCOG), Attorney Hawks-Ladd's interactive presentation provided sample human resource templates, covered required and best practice components for employee handbooks, explained legal context for select provisions, and identified recent federal and state legislative changes that may have rendered existing municipal handbook documents out-of-date and non-compliant.  Municipal attorneys, Mayors, First Selectmen, City and Town Managers, and Personnel Directors were encouraged to attend.
