Megan M. Ruwe Quoted on Handbook Law in Finance & Commerce
Winthrop & Weinstine, P.A., employment lawyer Megan M. Ruwe
is quoted in a Finance & Commerce
article surrounding a recent Court of Appeals decision. The article, “Court: Handbook did not give employees contractual rights,” looks at the Court’s ruling that as long as there is a clear disclaimer, an employee handbook
doesn’t constitute a contractual agreement with an employee for vacation pay. “[…]the case appears to be the first one to address disclaimers and vacation pay in one opinion,” Megan said, “but that the idea that handbook law applies to vacation pay is not new” (Qtd. in Jones).
