Webinar: Is Your Employee Handbook Ready for 2020 and Beyond?

Meredith C. Shoop

Employee handbooks are important. They tell employees what to expect, managers how to manage, and HR how to deal with all kinds of employee needs and benefits. However, if they are not written or enforced properly, they may also tell plaintiff's attorneys just where your organization is most vulnerable to claims - even class and collective action claims.

Meredith Shoop, a shareholder with the labor and employment law firm of Littler Mendelson, P.C. discusses the importance of handbooks, what should be included (and excluded) from them, key areas of risk, and the impact of recent legal developments. Attendees receive practical feedback on the structure and contents of their organization's handbooks as well as important insights into areas of legal exposure.

Topics include:

  • The impact of handbooks on compliance and legal exposure;
  • Practical guidance on the structure and contents of your organization's handbooks; and
  • Areas of risk related to employee handbook policies, including developing areas such as paid sick leave, marijuana in the workplace, and salary history bans

Learning Objectives

  • Understand where your organization is most at risk;
  • Gain insight on recent legal developments affecting the workplace; and
  • Receive practical feedback to improve your employee handbook.
