Policies to Guide Employee Conduct and Respond to Misconduct

April 26, 2021 Published Works

Scott Connolly, partner in Verrill’s Employment & Labor Group, has authored the chapter “Policies to Guide Employee Conduct and Respond to Misconduct” in MCLE’s book, Drafting Employment Documents in Massachusetts (4th Edition 2021).

The book is published by MCLE and is an essential resource for Massachusetts employers, employment attorneys, and human resources professionals. Scott’s chapter covers workplace policies that help to guide employee conduct, ensure legal compliance, promote the employer’s cultural values, and respond to misconduct.

Scott has broad experience as both in-house and outside counsel helping employers achieve their business objectives while complying with federal and state employment laws. He guides employers through the full spectrum of issues that arise from the employment relationship, including those issues most likely to lead to litigation such as wage/overtime disputes, employee discipline and performance problems, sexual harassment and other workplace investigations, terminations, and reductions in force.
