Description
Does your organization have an employee handbook? If so, when was the last time you reviewed and updated it? Have you made sure that all the necessary policies are included in your handbook, and that your handbook does not include policies that do not apply to your company?

Laws keep changing, but most employers' employee handbooks are rarely updated. Worse, many employers have employee handbooks that work against them and bind them to promises and obligations that can be enforced by current and former employees in a court of law.

This presentation opens with a discussion of the benefits of employee handbooks and why every employer should have one. Essential handbook policies such as EEO policies, protected leave, drug and alcohol testing, and wage and hour policies will be covered.

Andrew also will discuss areas in which employers may struggle to determine the best policies and practices for their workplaces—social media being one such example. Finally, participants will learn about the most common mistakes found in many employee handbooks as well as how to fix those common mistakes.

There will be adequate time left for question and answer both during the presentation and after it is complete.

This webinar is essential for any employer, company leader or HR professional whose company does not currently have a handbook, or who has a handbook that has not been reviewed or revisited in years. If you have not reviewed and revised your handbook in the past year, you will find this webinar invaluable.
Who Should Participate
Any HR Professional, especially those responsible for developing, updating and enforcing workplace policies.
What You Will Learn
  1. Essential policies that every employee handbook should contain.
  2. Recent laws that necessitate updates to employee handbooks, and how to make those changes.
  3. Policies contained by many handbooks that actually hinder, rather than help, the employer, and how to fix those policies.
Recommended Resources
It is not necessary for viewers to review any resources prior to the seminar; however, Andrew will provide resource ideas during the seminar.
