The Employer’s Guide to Success: Avoiding Claims and Litigation with Good Core Policies & Employee Handbooks

This HALF-DAY seminar is designed to educate business owners, human resources professionals and managers/supervisors on legally compliant employment policies designed to help avoid employee claims and litigation and improve daily management of employees.

  • Vacation, Paid Sick Leave and Paid Time Off.
  • Medical leaves of absences: Disability (and Pregnancy Disability), Workers’ Compensation, Paid Family Leave, Reasonable Accommodation under ADA and FEHA, FMLA and CFRA. Detailed explanation of how leaves work, which leaves run concurrently and which leaves apply to a company of your size!
  • Time off for: Jury Duty, Military Service, Crime Victims, Time Off to Vote, Bone Marrow/Organ Donor, Employee entering Rehabilitation, and Bereavement.
  • Policies relating to daily management of employees: Technology policies including video and GPS surveillance of employees and e-mail monitoring; Dress codes and Uniforms; Social Media; Employees who Drive Vehicles for Work; Anti-Fraternization; Conflicts of Interest; and Anti-Gossip/Anti-Bullying.
  • Arbitration and Confidentiality Agreements.
