Overview of the webinar

Employers must get prepared for all the employment regulations scheduled to be effective in 2021 and beyond. Federal regulations have increased more this year than in previous years. Both Federal and State regulations have at times been at odds with each other. The Department of Labor (DOL) has increased its efforts to audit companies that have not updated their policies & workplace regulations. The other regulatory agencies are also increasing efforts to target Employers who are not compliant with their regulations.

Employee handbooks have been a tool for Employers from small to large companies for several years. Many companies elect to have employee handbooks and utilize employee handbook templates that are provided on-line which we call “cookie-cutter handbooks” since they are created as a “one size fits all”. Unfortunately, employee handbooks can be a huge risk if not updated regularly, adapted to each company, reflect policies that are followed consistently, and reflect current regulations. Employee handbooks are also a critical communication tool for employees to understand what the company expects from employees.

In my workplace compliance experience, employees review the handbook when they are new employees coming onboard to the company and when they are considering leaving the company or when they are considering suing the company.
