Mari is our Human Resource Hotline Manager located in CEA’s

Sacramento office. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in

Organization Communications from CSU Sacramento and her PHR

from SHRM, the Society for Human Resource Management. Before

joining CEA, Mari spent the last ten years working as a HR Manager

for a major contract manufacturing company and a Fortune 500

software development company.

The seminar highlights included the purpose and function of an

employee handbook.

obligations and responsibilities are as an employer,

what reasonable accommodations employers are

expected to make for their employees, and how the

employee is expected to make his or her finest efforts

while working in the dental office.



She discussed the purpose of the handbook and then went on to

discuss employee classifications and the policy against harassment.

The comments on the presentation were very positive. Attendees

stated that it was great, informative, and very usable informationeveryone

outstanding as a speaker. We will be sure to get her back in 2009 to

update all anticipated changes we will have to endure. ▲
