Description:

This past July, the Fair Employment and Housing Council (FEHC) adopted new regulations relating to criminal history, as well as gender identity and gender expression. These new regulations require you to update your policies and practices concerning criminal histories, background checks, and dress and grooming.

Also, right now two important bills regarding parental leave and “ban the box” are on Governor Brown’s desk for signature.

Is your employee handbook up to date with the latest legal changes? Even if 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.

Join us for a comprehensive employee handbook webinar specifically for California employers.

You’ll learn:

  • How to make changes to your handbook that align with new state and federal laws and regulations for 2018
  • How to update specific policies to comply with new rules on:

    • Background checks and criminal history
    • Anti-discrimination, and dress and grooming policies
    • Paid family leave benefits (changes taking effect January 1, 2018)

  • How to update your employment policies to comply with new California legislation, including bills on Governor Brown’s desk right now
  • How to ensure that your non-smoking policy meets the expanded smoke-free workplace protections enacted last year
  • How to spot whether your anti-discrimination policy complies with current FEHC regulations
  • How to update confidentiality and non-disclosure policy language so you don’t misstep by trying to limit employees from disclosing their own wages or discussing or inquiring about the wages of others in light of California’s newly amended Equal Pay law
  • What the employee handbook should state to comply with new requirements to provide employees with notice of leave for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking
  • How to update your paid sick leave policy to ensure it complies with California’s paid sick leave law and any applicable local ordinances
  • Disclaimer language to always include in your California employee handbook
  • Key language that can legally protect your company
  • A list of important policy language 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

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
