This webinar will explain how to develop and maintain a high-quality multi-state employee handbook. It will cover common federal and state issues in multistate handbook drafting including NLRB, EEOC, PPACA, disability, pregnancy and leave.
Employee handbooks can be an employer’s best friend or worst enemy. Strong, direct employee handbooks give employers a fantastic first of line of defense and a great go-to guide for most issues that arise in the workplace. Poor employee handbooks, in contrast, can immediately undermine a workplace. So, employers must effectively navigate the complications to develop and maintain a high-quality, dependable, and successful handbook.
Multistate employers need a dynamic and effective multi-state handbook. Every employer who has employees in more than one state automatically faces a myriad of confusing state laws, federal mandates, and legal conflicts that must be addressed in order to work effectively in multiple jurisdictions.
This webinar will offer attendees a tool-box of best practices for developing and maintaining a strong multi-state employee handbook.
