Strength & Service Series: By the (Hand)book — Staying Compliant in a Changing Environment

Tuesday, August 17, 2021
2–3 p.m. ET

Summary

Handbooks, policies and forms . . . oh my! In 2020, many organizations had to quickly adapt to working remotely, and keep up with rapidly changing new health and safety requirements. Even though the dust seems to have settled a little and we are trending back towards some normalcy (knock on wood) it is not yet time to ease up if you are responsible for your organization’s handbook or policies. With these changing work environments coupled with new legislation, your handbook may be (probably is) outdated. There are over 50 new laws that took effect July 1 alone that impact 20 different states. How can you keep up? How do you know if your handbook is compliant for federal, state and local laws? Join us for a webinar to discuss handbooks where we will:

  • Share best practices on updating your handbook 
  • Discuss key employment areas to review or create 
  • Provide guidance for returning to the office or considerations for remaining remote 
  • Give an overview of the online HR Support Center
  • Share how you can stay up to date with legislative changes

Featured Speaker:

  • Beth Jones, Director of Ministry Solutions at Concordia Plans
