INFORMATION
Training Overview

Have you updated your Employee Handbook for 2023? Learn what you must change to comply with current laws.

Several state and local employment laws took effect on January 1, 2023, adding to the recent regulations and court decisions that affect employers. You need to create or update your employee handbook to reflect all these requirements. Most organizations refresh this critical document every March.

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you may be tempted to search for a handbook template on the internet, this will likely provide a foundation that is outdated, illegal, or fails to comply with the laws of your jurisdiction.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 must 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.
