Title:

California’s Employee Handbook Mid-Year Checkup: Essential Updates, Key Drafting Tips And Enforcement Alerts

SKU:WC-1022753
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar
Description:

When practicing HR in California, there’s never a dull moment, that’s for sure. Here are just a few examples of the recent developments you (and your employee handbook) need to keep track of:

  • At the state level: New regulations issued by the California Fair Employment & Housing Council (FEHC), in effect as of April 1, place certain requirements on company policies barring harassment, discrimination, and retaliation.
  • At the local level: A new Santa Monica wage ordinance has an impact on minimum wage and paid sick leave, beginning next year (with other municipalities passing similar legislation).
  • At the federal level: The Defend Trade Secrets Act, which President Obama signed into law in May, exposes employers to new notice obligations concerning employees’ whistleblower rights.
It’s no easy feat to stay on top of the constantly evolving laws and regulations affecting California workplaces. Still, it’s your responsibility as an HR professional to ensure that your employee handbook reflects changes like these, and that your employees are informed and up-to-date on your company’s policies and expectations.

Join us for an in-depth webinar when Marc L. Jacuzzi, a skilled California-based employment law attorney, will explain how the latest legal developments affect your employee handbook and the action items you must take to address these changes.

Learning Objectives
  • What’s changing in California law, and what you need to make sure your handbook includes now (not six months or a year from now)
  • Changes in federal laws and regulations that drive employee handbook updates
  • The practical impact the Defend Trade Secrets Act has on your employee handbook and confidentiality agreements
  • Handbook components and policies you must include—and some you should at least consider

  • Best practices for BYOD (bring your own device) policies covering cell phone and tablet usage
  • Your obligation to make personnel records available for inspection and how to update your handbook
  • How to update your anti-harassment policies to ensure compliance with new FEHC regulations that went into effect on April 1
  • How long you should keep the old version of your employee handbook on file
  • Tips for communicating handbook changes

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.
