It is important for employers to have clear and well-communicated policies, not only for compliance with various federal or state laws but also to ensure employees understand what is expected of them. In this webinar, we will cover ten important policies every employer should have, including harassment and discrimination prevention, open door, social media, drug and alcohol in the workplace, and workplace violence awareness.
Why Should You Attend:
Do your employment policies preserve the at-will nature of your employee’s work? Do you have an effective anti-harassment policy in place? Do your employees know whom to contact if they feel they have been harassed or retaliated against? These and other policies are critically important for each workplace to have. This webinar will cover ten of the most important policies every employer should have.
Certain employment policies are so important that they should be adopted and disseminated by each and every employer. For example, who should an employee complain to if he or she feels they have been subjected to harassment? Are there certain work-related matters you do not want your employees posting about on social media? Your employees need to know what is expected of them in the workplace. Plus, many policies have consequences in employment-related litigation, such as those preserving the at-will nature of employment. This webinar will cover ten of the most important policies every employer should have.
