Employee Handbook Check-Up: Mid-Year Updates, Drafting Tips, And Enforcement Alerts For 2016

SKU:WC-1022756
Date / Time: Recorded

Description:

Between the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, labor-friendly victories at the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the legalization of marijuana, increased focused on transgender employees, and the passage of paid sick leave and domestic violence leave laws across the country, you probably need to make changes to your employee handbook right now.

Considering that courts are frequently upholding lawsuits brought by transgender employees, arbitration agreements are being held unlawful on a more frequent basis, and more and more states and municipalities are enacting sick leave laws, you have a critical obligation to limit your organization’s liability by making sure policies are up-to-date.

Join us when Danielle Garcia, a skilled employment attorney, will teach you how to update your employee handbook in order to address the latest employee expectations, employment laws, and regulations.

Treat your handbook like the living document that it is and make sure it reflects the latest regulations so as to protect your job, your organization, and your employees!

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.
