Employers must get prepared for all the employment regulations scheduled to be effective in 2021and 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 online which we call “cookie-cutter handbook” 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 them as well as what the company expects from employees.

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

Session Highlights:

  • New paid leave laws and how employers can manage them
  • Impact of “Ban the Box” regulations on criminal background screening regulations
  • States where asking candidates for salary history has been prohibited. This means removing the salary history in handbooks, applications, and career websites
  • Best practices in developing an employee handbook
  • What is the difference between employee handbooks and company policies?
  • Learn What employee handbook policies will be outdated before the year is out
  • Identify the best practices that can propel your company to be compliance savvy
  • Learn how your managers/supervisors can be your ambassadors in workplace compliance or your downfall

Why you Should Attend:

One of your biggest issues will revolve around payroll. Here are just some of the payroll-related issues that arise:

  • The Employee Handbook is one of 4 documents that Attorneys review when deciding to pursue litigation.
  • Over 26-35 regulations have changed since 2020. If you haven’t updated your employee handbook since 2019, your handbook is already outdated and is a risk of violations.
  • Multi-State regulations have increased and continue to expand to other states.
