ASA Members Can Now Access Popular BLR Employee Handbook Builder Tool

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (August 15, 2016)—Business & Legal Resources (BLR) is now offering its popular employee handbook tool, The Thompson Employee Handbook Builder, to members of the American Subcontractors Association through its ASAdvantage affinity program.

ASA is recognized as the united voice of construction subcontractors dedicated to improving the business environment in the construction industry. Its affinity program, the ASAdvantage, allows ASA members to receive significant discounts and exclusive offers from participating companies.

BLR is offering ASA members an exclusive 10 percent discount off subscriptions to The Thompson Employee Handbook Builder. The Thompson Employee Handbook Builder helps users avoid punitive action and lawsuits from non-compliant handbooks and is a completely Web browser-based system, unlike software products that require users to download files onto their computers.

With this tool, users can build, access, and update their handbook from any computer with a Web browser and an internet connection. In addition, users can search applicable federal and state policies, review them, and get updates throughout the year. All policies for the handbook are attorney reviewed and updated—any changes are automatically sent out to Builder subscribers.
