Employee Handbooks: Required Changes for 2014 and the 12 Most Common Mistakes
If your employee handbook hasn’t been updated in the past six months, it’s out of date. For example:
Is your at-will statement an invitation to a massive NLRA lawsuit (based on the new NLRB ruling)?
Do you realize that you can’t prohibit discussions on pay and benefits?
Have you provided clear rules on overtime and off-the-clock work?
Have you updated all your social media policies in light of recent NLRB rulings on Facebook and Twitter?
Have you updated your leave policies to include time off for employees with relatives in the military … or to prohibit moonlighting while on FMLA leave?
Have you updated your benefit policies to leave no doubt that health insurance may be changed or eliminated at the company’s discretion?
Your employee handbook can be an invaluable organizational tool … or an employment lawsuit waiting to happen. And in recent years, Congress and state legislatures have been busy enacting laws that directly affect your employee handbook. If you haven’t kept up, you could find yourself in court.
