What Employee Handbook Updates Should HR Consider for 2021?
A lot happened in 2020. From the global COVID-19 pandemic to new Supreme Court decisions, HR was expected to stay on top of a wide assortment of new compliance rules and regulations.
Consider implementing the following updates to your employee handbook for 2021:
Remote Work Policies:
New Employee Leave Requirements: The CARES Act and FFCRA were passed in March 2020 to protect employees and employers during the coronavirus outbreak. While the former deals mostly with economic relief and updates to HSAs, FSAs, and HRAs, the FFCRA expanded emergency family and medical leave as well as emergency paid sick leave
Safety and Security Plans: There’s a very real chance that COVID-19 could last well into 2021.
