About This Course:
Now is the time to update, or at least prepare to update, your employee handbook. A new year is around the corner and employers need to be up to speed on coming changes in the laws that affect employment. Your employee handbook is a communication tool that sets out policy and can protect you and your employer. Understanding what you need to put in, and what you need to leave out of your handbook is essential for employers as a good communication tool.

You need to know what’s coming at the federal level, but more importantly is keeping an eye on changes in the laws at the state level. For example many jurisdictions now require specific language in sexual harassment policies. In addition, a review of drug policies is necessitated by the growth of recreational and medical marijuana laws.

The handbook should have a handle on all the newest laws, but also should include wording that allows for changes at any time and protects you from litigation. Attend our in-depth webinar on the topic and get drafting or revising your handbook!What You'll Learn:
  • Recognize current and imminent changes in federal and state laws may impact your current employee handbook
  • Prepare an employee handbook or review your current employee handbook carefully to determine how it needs to be updated
  • Avoid statements that can be interpreted in legally risky ways
  • Give employees notice in the handbook to explain their rights and responsibilities concerning certain laws, such as the Family and Medical Leave Act
  • Avoid policies that employees could interpret as hindering them from reporting violations under the EEOC
  • Recognize what to include in the handbook, including a disclaimer stating that the handbook can be changed at any time
  • Include correct language that protects you legally, including an integrated at-will agreement
  • Evaluate which policies you need to include, no matter how obvious they may seem
  • Review your social media, recording, and communications policies carefully
  • And much more!
