EmployerLINC Webinar: Does your employee handbook measure up?

Have your employee handbooks been collecting dust for years? Or have they been only partially ignored amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday life in the workplace? Given the recent changes in Oklahoma employment law, federal agency regulations and interpretations, and ramped-up enforcement activities by state and federal authorities, now is the perfect time to make sure your employee handbooks are both up-to-date and effective.

So how does your employee handbook measure up? Does it adequately address your company’s specific needs while complying with state and federal law and regulations, or does it expose your business to an increased risk of exposure or liability?

During this one-hour webinar, labor and employment attorneys Charlie Plumb and Sharolyn Whiting-Ralston will be joined by special guest Steve Darr, a veteran HR professional and director of human resources for Reasor’s, to discuss what makes for an effective employee handbook … and what doesn’t.

Topics covered include:

  • Why a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t fit all.
  • Who should be included in the handbook auditing process.
  • What must be included in a handbook, what shouldn’t, and why.
  • Effective, day-to-day use of your handbook, including distribution and communication procedures.
  • Updating your drug and alcohol testing policy to comply with the new Oklahoma statute which goes into effect November 1, 2011.
  • Updating other policies to comply with new federal regulations and trends.
