Description:

Learn how to update your California employee handbook to ensure compliance with the latest federal and state legislation, regulations, and court rulings and avoid common drafting “traps” that can lead to legal liability for your company.

New court rulings and legislative updates require HR professionals to pay regular and close attention to their California employee handbook. If your employee handbook isn’t up to date with the latest state and federal employment-related developments, it could, in and of itself, spark legal liability for your company.

There are plenty of reasons to take time now to review your organization’s employee handbook.

Recently, a California court ruled on the issue of on-duty and on-call rest periods. Also, FEHA regulations were recently expanded regarding harassment and discrimination policies, translation requirements, and child-related activities. And, on the federal front, a recent National Labor Relations Board decision in T-Mobile U.S.A. Inc. indicates that restrictive policies, even those that seem innocuous, such as telling employees to maintain a positive work environment, could violate the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA).

Plus, there are a number of other important questions you should be prepared to answer depending on your particular situation, such as:

  • Do we need to include a handbook section about the Form I-9?
  • If so, what exactly do we need to include?
  • Can public-sector employees be considered “at will”?
  • Are there specific HR policies for nonprofits? Is there anything that should be added for a standard HR policy manual?
  • How does the employer’s size affect what should be included in the employee handbook? In other words, are there essential elements that small employers (under 50 workers) and larger employers (50-plus employees) should include and why?
Join us for a review of new California legislation, court rulings, and regulations impacting employee handbook policy development in California. You’ll also get legal insights into employee handbook policy drafting and policy enforcement mistakes to avoid.

You’ll learn:
  • How to identify “trouble spots” in your existing handbook based on newly decided state and federal cases, enacted legislation, and regulatory updates so you can hone in on what to update and by when
  • Essential employee handbook updates concerning:
  • Meal and rest breaks under California law
  • Fair compensation in light of the newly amended Equal Pay Act
  • Confidentiality and non-disclosure of wages
  • New requirements to provide employees with notice of leave for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking
  • Paid family leave benefits
  • California’s amended paid sick leave law (and any applicable local ordinances)
  • Background checks and applicants’ juvenile convictions
  • How to make sure the handbook is crafted in a way that clearly communicates the policies you need to share with employees
  • Essential policies to always include—no matter how obvious they appear to be
  • Examples of statements that could be interpreted in legally “risky” ways—and how to revise them to minimize your legal risks
  • The importance of disclaimer language
  • The type of language that may provides an added layer of employer protection—including an integrated at-will agreement
In just 90 minutes you’ll learn how to update your California employee handbook to ensure compliance with the latest legislation, regulations, and court rulings, and avoid common drafting “traps” that can lead to legal liability for your company.

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.
