Adam Forman Quoted in “Employers Beware”Rhode Island Lawyers Weekly April 20, 2016
Adam S. Forman, a Member of the Firm in the Employment, Labor & Workforce Management practice, in the firm’s Chicago and Detroit offices, was quoted in Rhode Island Lawyers Weekly, in “Employers Beware.”
Following is an excerpt:
The risks of leaving potentially troublesome rules in place justify the cost of having handbooks reviewed by attorneys, as opposed to companies trying to figure it out on their own, said Adam S. Forman, a member at Epstein Becker Green, who represents employers.
“An employer shouldn’t be penny-wise and pound-foolish,” he said.
The Quicken case showed the argument that the handbook was rarely used doesn’t work as a defense, Forman said.
“If it exists, if it’s in your handbook, it is overly broad,” he said. “You should have that handbook reviewed.”
