Employee Handbooks: Key Updates, Drafting Tips, And Enforcement Advice for 2016

SKU:WC-1020387
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar
Description:

Is your employee handbook ready for 2016? Are you sure?

Between the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, labor friendly victories at the National Labor Relations Board, the legalization of marijuana, increased focused on transgender employees, and the passage of paid sick leave and domestic violence leave laws across the country, 2016 changes will likely necessitate changes to your employee handbook.

Your employee handbook can be HR's best friend or worst enemy depending on what it includes and how policies are worded.

Join us to learn how to update your employee handbook, a living document that must remain current and correct to protect your organization in the event of a dispute with a current or former employee.

You’ll start the year off right by making sure your carefully worded employee handbook communicates expectations and shields your organization from liability. And addresses all the very latest employee expectations, employment laws, and regulations.

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.
