1.25 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: Relationship Management, Leadership & Navigation, HR Expertise | Intended Audience: Midlevel
Workplace Application:
You will learn practical solutions to the expansion of the NLRB and EEOC powers and will leave with practical take-aways and templates to ensure your handbooks are not a risk to your organization. 

The NLRB and the EEOC have honed a laser-like focus on employee handbooks in both the unionized and non-unionized sectors. This focus has led to countless lawsuits and charges, yet organizations still are not “doing it right” according to these agencies. This session will provide a deep dive into those elements of your employee handbook that are most likely to run afoul of NLRB and EEOC edicts. This program will educate you on the latest trends and changes in the legal landscape with respect to language in handbooks and a close examination into the following:

  • Understanding the NLRB and the EEOC's new edicts and decisions relative to handbooks for union and non-union workplaces.
  • Understanding how to adopt proactive measures that will protect your company from being dragged into lawsuits or agency charge.
  • Providing the tools with which to make sound business decisions and recommendations to company leadership with respect to handbooks.
  • Focusing on and critiquing specific policies and practices that must be implemented, revised, removed, or discontinued.
