WSLL Recommends: Employment Law Manual

When researching employment law compliance, remember the Employment Law Manual for Wisconsin Employers. Authored by Milwaukee attorney Thomas P. Krukowski and published by Krukowski & Costello law firm, the 2010 edition contains over 1,300 pages arranged into 31 chapters that cover everything from the hiring process to employee discharge, benefits continuation, and recordkeeping and retention requirements. Here are just a few of the many features:
  • Detailed checklists to assist in auditing employer policies
  • A sample employee handbook, for drafting or auditing your own
  • Computers and privacy in the workplace
  • How to conduct employee background checks
  • COBRA health insurance continuation rules and forms
  • Termination checklist and recommendations
  • Which records to keep and for how long
The companion CD-ROM, also revised in 2010, contains all the sample forms and policies provided in the manual, including the sample employee handbook. To help researchers stay up to date, Krukowski also publishes two e-newsletters covering a current topic in employment law and OSHA compliance each month. Free registration and archives of both newsletters are available on the Krukowski & Costello website.

The Wisconsin State Law Library and Milwaukee Legal Resource Center each own the Employment Law Manual for Wisconsin Employers. Visit today to use or borrow it.
