(Recorded Webinar) Seven “Must-Have” Policies to Avoid Common Legal Issues Arising from the Employment Relationship

Duration: 40 minutes
Recorded on: 7/19/2022

This webinar is part two of the three-part Proactive Strategies for Limiting Legal Issues throughout an Employee's Lifecycle series. To purchase the full series, click here.

An organization’s best defense against employment-related disputes is its foresight and preparedness to anticipate workplace challenges throughout the lifecycle of each employee’s tenure with the company. This process requires the organization to formulate and implement proactive strategies that contemplate each stage of the employment relationship, commencing with its hiring and onboarding practices, and concluding with the manner in which it handles terminations.

FTLF’s Employment Law practice group is pleased to present a special three-part webinar series that will provide you with proactive strategies to minimize the risk of legal issues arising with respect to each step in an employee’s lifecycle with your organization. In this second part of the webinar series, we will detail those “must-have” policies that will help your organization avoid common legal issues that arise during the employment relationship. Specifically, we will discuss policies pertaining to: remote work/telecommuting arrangements; exempt and nonexempt classifications for determining whether an employee is eligible for overtime wages; requests for accommodations; paid and unpaid leave; and, other important policies that your organization should have in place.

Please note: This webinar is offered as a complimentary product to all Employment Law and Human Resources Compliance and Training Package holders. For more information on the training package, click here or Contact Us.
