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.

  • How to determine if your existing document creation, storage, retention, and destruction policies are up-to-date and legally sound?
  • When and how to shred hard copies or destroy electronic documents-such as for terminated employees?
  • When your legal duty to preserve records is triggered?

  • What new requirements are based on state by state regulations?
  • The impact of criminal background checks in the employee handbook and company policies

Did you know that employee handbooks can be a risk or a benefit for employers? 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? Let me help you create an employee handbook that will reduce your company’s risk and help you mitigate the numerous workplace regulations that can impact your company.

We collect a massive amount of employee information in both paper and digital formats. But what do you need to keep, and for how long? And how can you ensure that records remain confidential, especially in this era of sharing online and via smartphones and tablets?

It's our job to know what can be shared, what must absolutely not be shared, and how all information should be properly protected. Even with old-school hard copy records, it's vital to know the rules on what must be kept and for how long and what can be shredded. Knowing what to keep in case of possible civil penalties or litigation and knowing when we must legally destroy certain records can be like walking a tightrope.
