Upstate Employers Network (UEN) is a private, not-for-profit association of employers in the Upstate South Carolina region.
UEN provides training, information, and guidance to help its members recruit, train, engage and retain associates in workplaces that value sound management practices and enlightened employer-employee relations programs.
We understand that your organization’s resources are limited. It is harder than ever to recruit, train, engage, and retain your workforce. That's where we come in.
We’re here to help you with the “people side” of your business so that you can spend more time building relationships with customers, improving processes, eliminating waste, and the other important objectives that support and sustain your business.
Our members are employers of various sizes whose business sectors include manufacturing, service, healthcare, finance, and others.
Please contact us. We welcome the opportunity to learn more about your business, and to discuss how we can help.

The Report summarizes recent cases involving employee handbook rules and explains the General Counsel’s reasoning in either challenging or upholding those rules.
