Your organization has invested time and effort to create and maintain a compliant employee handbook, but when was the last time you trained your managers and supervisors on how to use it? Last year? Three years ago? Never? Supervisors are usually an employee’s first point of contact when they have a question about workplace policies and practices. A supervisor can inadvertently create serious legal and morale issues and just general confusion if they aren’t aware of and have training on implementing handbook policies.
In this 60-minute webinar, attorney Chelsea Mesa, a partner in Seyfarth Shaw’s Los Angeles office, will show how you can reduce employee complaints, risks of potential employment lawsuits, and damage to the organization’s reputation and employee morale through regular supervisor training.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- What an employer’s and supervisor’s liability are in implementing policies;
- Key policies for which supervisor training is crucial;
- When and how often to train supervisors on the handbook and polices;
- And more!
