|Dear Ministry Partners,
Employment practices liability can be a costly concern for churches and related ministries. Many find themselves defending against claims of wrongdoing in such areas as sexual harassment, discrimination, or wrongful dismissal.
Guidelines for Creating an Employee Handbook
One way to prevent such claims or defend against them is to develop an employee handbook. To help you in this area, Brotherhood Mutual has published Working Together: A Guide to Employment Practices for Ministries. The 76-page manual contains:
God bless you and your ministry!
- Relevant federal laws
- Helpful risk management techniques
- Advice on how to prepare an employee handbook
- Guides for monitoring the policies and practices within a handbook
P.S. Has your church been up to something lately that you'd like to share? Are you going on a mission trip? Working on a great outreach project that others should know about? Planning an amazing VBS? Whatever it is, we want to hear it, and we can help you spread the news by featuring you in our quarterly newsletter! Just let us know by replying to this email. Space is limited, so we'll take requests on a first-come, first-served basis! Thanks!
