RECORDED TRAINING COURSE
1.5 CEUs HRCI | 1.5 PDCs SHRM APPROVED
Employers should know that the employee handbook is one of the documents that is reviewed by attorneys who are looking to sue them. Having an employee handbook is critical to a company and having it updated with all the necessary policies is crucial. Labor research has proven that Employers have a delay in implementing new regulations and adding them to Employee Handbooks or stand-alone policies.
New regulations go hand in hand with the employee handbook and standalone policy updates. As a compliance officer, I am always providing support to Employers and professionals and see what the gaps are when protecting employees. Federal, State, and local regulations have an impact on maintaining workplace compliance and Employers need to be aware that when Federal, State, and Local regulations clash the regulations with the most benefit for the employees supersede.
That is why it is important to be aware of and follow all workplace regulations.
Now more than ever, Employers need to ensure employee handbooks are up to date, and consistent, and include all new regulations and changes that involve the workplace. This training will focus on some of the major errors that are made when updating employee handbooks and how to avoid some of the large penalties.
