Peale, Floor 1, Hilton

Pre-registration required. Space is limited. Booksellers are encouraged to attend the seminar in its entirety. Registration is closed. An employee manual is the documentation for your store’s policies and procedures, as well as for employees’ legal rights and obligations. But it is more than that. This document provides a window into the unique workplace vision and culture that you have built — or that you want to build. The workshop will cover the following sections for your employee manual:

  • Workplace culture, including store values and mission statement
  • General employment information
  • Code of conduct
  • Benefits
  • Disciplinary procedures and grounds for termination
  • Employee manual disclaimer

Panelists: Stephanie Steinberg, Hachette Book Group (New York, NY), Rebecca Fitting, Greenlight Bookstore (Brooklyn, NY), Jenny Cohen, Waucoma Bookstore (Hood River, OR)
