As we kick-off 2021, many HR & in-house legal professionals continue navigating intense pandemic-related challenges. That said, employers must, at the same time, address the heavy volume of handbook-related policy changes at the federal, state and local level. Whether your organization has already updated your handbook or, is still trying to find the time and resources to get it right, employers know their organization’s handbook and policies are essential to establishing and defining its working relationship with its employees. In 2021, this is no easy task.
ComplianceHR CEO, Lori Brown, and Litter Shareholders Meredith Shoop and Natasha DeCourcy help us navigate the New Year handbook compliance challenges and discuss the latest and greatest thinking on what new topics can/should be included in your handbook, and those existing sections which may need refreshing, including:
- Work from home (telecommuting) policies
- Message clothing in the workplace
- COVID-19 policies
- Utilizing PolicySmart™ to simplify the process
