  • falsification of a ohio handbook

    Iam wanting to know if there is a law for misleading information in a company hand book? Our company's new handbook was revised in Jan. 2005, It say that after 6 mos. of employment you should recieve a general raise.I asked my supervisor about this.Her reply was from HR leader,that it was a misprint and that it should not have been in the new handbook. Do I have rights to this on lying about this information?

    Unless the handbook is written in such a way as to create a contract (which is possible but very, very, unlikely) they are not under any legal obligation to provide raises at any time.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
