Behind the scenes, KM provides tools to make our attorneys more efficient. For example, the Littler Release Agreement Builder provides not only a state-of-the-art release template, but also gives our attorneys a collection of guideposts that other colleagues have considered when drafting release agreements. Similarly, we use document automation, template libraries, and expert systems in a wide range of practice areas, including, among others, arbitration, labor relations, wage and hour and workplace safety. For example, Littler HR PolicySmart® (available through ComplianceHR) provides continuous access to up-to-date handbook templates for all 50 states, as well as summaries of handbook-related legal developments, redlined policy updates, a calendar tracking upcoming effective dates for laws potentially impacting employee-facing policies, and a bi-monthly newsletter notifying attorneys of the month’s handbook-related developments and effective dates. These resources make Littler’s legal practice more efficient by gathering our best insights, jump starting research and presenting the material in a customized fashion to provide our professionals with the information they need when they need it.
We understand our clients’ need for immediate, easy access to employment law resources. Littler offers instant access to a variety of Littler’s self-service toolkits, guides and training videos. Downloadable resources include:
