What Laws, Regulations and Policies Must Be Part of Your Employee Handbook in 2020?

Recorded Session
90 Minutes

OVERVIEW

    Are you aware of the new policy plan for your employee handbook in the coming year of 2020? Are your employees gaining the right insights about your firm with the employee handbook of 2020? Every year there are certain changes in recruiting policies, as well as the generation of employees who get recruited. Employee handbooks are a critical communication tool for employees to understand what the company expects from them as well as what the company expects from employees. This webinar will discuss the latest updates on the employee handbook that an organization must include to make it suitable for the year 2020.

    Employees review the handbook when they are newly on-boarded in the company, when they are considering leaving the company, or when they are considering suing the company. Employee handbooks have been a tool for employers from small to large companies for several years. Many companies elect to have employee handbooks and utilize employee handbook templates that are provided on-line, which we call “cookie-cutter handbook” since they are created as a “one size fits all”. Unfortunately, employee handbooks can be a huge risk if not updated regularly, adapted to each company, reflect policies that are followed consistently, and reflect current regulations.

For years an employee handbook has been one of the first documents employment law attorneys request when they are planning to pursue workplace charges against an employer. Shouldn’t you ensure that your employee handbook protects your company instead of exposing it to numerous risks? Shouldn't you keep your handbook prepared for 2020?
