Taught by Labor and Employment Attorneys of SmithAmundsen LLC Register

Like most employers, you probably have an employee handbook, but when did you last review and update its contents? Are you sure your handbook complies with current laws? Will your handbook stand up to increased scrutiny by the DOL, EEOC 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, you need to dust off that
handbook and give it a proper evaluation. SmithAmundsen is pleased to invite you to this timely presentation on updating your employee handbooks. Join Noah Frank and Jeff Risch as they guide you through effectively using an employee handbook and identify top employee handbook mistakes that could cost you.

Topics include:
-The purpose of an employee handbook;
-Wage/Hour compliance;
-Safety standards;
-New EEO reporting and complaint procedure language;
-Surviving DOL, NLRB and EEOC scrutiny;
-What should be included in an employee handbook (and excluded);

-Preserving the at-will employment relationship;

-What to do when there is a union workforce; and
