Handbooks and Social Media Policies – Wilmington
December 5, 2018 at 12:00 pm EST
Wednesday, December 5th
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.
at Offit Kurman
1201 N. Orange St
8th Floor Conference Room
Wilmington, DE 19801
It is imperative for businesses of all sizes to stay up-to-date with trends, markets, and policy changes. With the proliferation of employment laws and increasing use of social media, it’s extremely easy for oversites to occur if employment policies aren’t reviewed, developed, updated, and enforced. In a comprehensive (and complimentary) lunch workshop, the experienced Labor and Employment Attorneys of Offit Kurman will discuss the “need-to-know” of employee handbooks, what’s been changed and updated, and what’s likely to come in the next year.
The topics to be covered include:
- The fundamentals and importance of a thorough and up-to-date handbook
- Changing NLRB positions regarding policies affecting non-union employees
- Social Media Policies and Procedures
- Common handbook misconceptions and omitted details
Having a clear, comprehensive and concise handbook is not only an effective way to communicate information to employees, but it also serves to reduce legal risk and, when reviewed with an attorney, to spot other potential issues. We hope you can join us for this informative and important lunch briefing.
