Training Overview

Is your employee handbook current and compliant? Learn how to create a document that’s customized for your local laws.

Several state and local employment laws take effect on July 1, 2022, adding to the numerous regulations imposed in the first half of the year. You need to update your employee handbook to reflect all these requirements. If you do not have this critical document in place, now is an ideal time to create it.

While you may be tempted to search for a handbook template on the internet, this will likely provide a foundation that is outdated, illegal, or fails to comply with the laws of your jurisdiction. Moreover, an off-the-shelf solution misses a key communication opportunity with your new and existing employees.

You need to craft a customized handbook that documents the guidelines and expectations between your organization and your employees. If you do not pay careful attention to your handbook’s contents, you might violate the law, alienate employees, and invite lawsuits.
