Employee Handbooks: Policy Updates You Need to Make for 2018

Live Webinar: Thursday, December 14, 2017

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to update your employee handbook to stay in compliance with the latest federal developments and national trends.


 

Is your employee handbook up to date with the latest legal changes? Even if you think it is, you need to make sure your policies don’t unintentionally create a binding contract with employees—one that could jeopardize their “at will” status and open you up to devastating lawsuits. 

Plus, with the continuing expansion of employee-friendly state and local legislation—not to mention the NLRB’s reach—it’s vital to make sure you’re staying on top of it all. 

Join us on December 14 for a comprehensive employee handbook webinar. 

You’ll learn: 

  • How to make changes to your handbook that align with federal court, legislative, and regulatory developments and national employment trends for 2018 
  • How to update specific policies addressing: 
    • Background checks and criminal history 
    • Anti-discrimination, self-expression, and dress and grooming policies 
    • Paid family leave benefits (which may be required soon by your state or municipality, if they’re not already) 
  • How various types of policy language could lead to legal risks under the National Labor Relations Act and equal pay legislation 
  • Disclaimer language to always include in your employee handbook, plus required state caveats 
  • Key language to include to protect your company 
  • A list of vital policies to always include 
  • How to generally craft an employee handbook that covers the policies you need 
  • How to avoid inadvertently creating a binding contract with your handbook language 
  • And much more!
