Author: XpertHR Editorial Team
When to Use
Most employers are well aware of the importance of keeping their employee handbook current with legal developments on the federal, state and local levels. But with changes happening at such a rapid pace, keeping employee policies up to date and compliant with the law can be a daunting task.
This checklist will help. Organized by jurisdiction, it lists significant new or changed compliance requirements that impact employee-facing policies, based on laws and regulations that have taken effect in 2022. It also includes links to the corresponding model employee handbook statements. Employers should refer to the jurisdictions listed below and complete the updates to their employee handbook(s) based on where they have operations or remote employees, and whether the laws are applicable to their workplace.
This checklist does not include certain COVID-19-related laws that are temporary in nature (e.g., in effect for a defined short period or for the duration of the public health emergency). Those policy templates can be located in the Coronavirus (COVID-19): Temporary Handbook Statements resource.
