California Employment Law Essentials: Let’s Talk About Employee Handbooks



Date & Time

Start Date: 08/25/2021
Start Time: 12:00 pm
End Time: 1:00 pm PDT


Well-written and updated employee handbooks are a useful and valuable tool for the defense of companies against employees’ claims. They are helpful in providing legitimacy for companies’ employment decisions by setting requirements and expectations for employees. Handbooks also emphasize companies’ commitments and compliance with their legal obligations to provide equal employment opportunities and maintain harassment-free workplaces. For experienced human resources professionals, this webinar will be a practical “refresher” program. For less experienced human resources professionals, this webinar will provide an introduction to, and real-world advice for, drafting and updating employee handbooks. Join us to learn about legal requirements and best practices as we discuss handbook essentials, legal updates for 2021, and mandatory, recommended, and optional policies you may want to include in your handbooks.

This webinar launches the California Employment Law Essentials series for HR Professionals. Be on the lookout for details about this series and mark your calendars now for September 15, when we will look at what you need to know about hiring and terminating employees in California.
