Course Description

A Guideline for Employees, or a Goldmine for Plaintiffs’ Attorneys?

An employee handbook is a great way to help with the onboarding process in your organization. A well-designed and engaging employee handbook is a brilliant touchstone for new hires and existing employees to draw information from at their own pace. Your employee handbook is your most valuable tool for communicating your company’s policies, practices, and vision.
There are numerous legal considerations associated with the design, adoption, and implementation of employee handbooks. Employee handbooks are subject to numerous legal requirements as well as federal and state labor laws. Other laws may factor in as well, including laws related to employee classification, employee leave, workers’ compensation, unemployment insurances/benefits, disability, and more. 

When done right, employee handbooks are invaluable. They provide employees with important information about a company, its practices, and the working environment. They also help protect employers legally by setting clear expectations and standards that employees must comply with. Done wrong, employee handbooks can harm you. 
An outdated, poorly written, the template-based handbook will inevitably lead to confusion, mismanagement, and lawsuits. We see it every day!

Join our speaker Cynthia Flynn for this CPE webinar as she will focus on best practices for developing and updating handbooks, and will also examine strategies and approaches.

This was a good presentation, but a lot of the content was California-specific, and I am not from California. Would have appreciated this information up front. The federal info was good, and the presenter was good at mentioning when the content she was presenting was California-specific.
