Employee Handbooks Essentials



Add to Calendar 3:00 PM 8/14/20194:30 PM America/Chicago Employee Handbooks Essentials

Presented by Noah A. Frank, Labor & Employment Attorney in SmithAmundsen’s Chicago Office

Are you just starting out and need to know what to put in an employee handout? Or are you like most employers, and already have an employee handbook, but you haven’t updated it in a while, and are no longer sure that it complies with current laws? Will your handbook stand up to increased scrutiny by the DOL, EEOC, OSHA, or NLRB? Will your handbook get you into trouble in your next employee lawsuit? Employment laws and regulations are ever-changing which means every few years (or more frequently!), you need to dust off that handbook and give it a proper evaluation. This workshop will discuss the purpose of an employee handbook; wage/hour compliance; safety standards; new EEO reporting and complaint procedure language; surviving DOL, OSHA, NLRB and EEOC scrutiny; what should be included (and excluded) in an employee handbook; privacy, workplace searches and drug testing policies; preserving the at-will employment relationship; ineffective language to avoid; what to do when there is a union workforce; and other common employee handbook mistakes.
