At their best, handbooks can effectively communicate employer policies and culture, and provide a strong defense against employee claims. At their worst, handbooks can sow confusion or trigger liability.

If you have not reviewed your handbook recently, now is a good time to do so. Even if you have been updating your handbook regularly, you may not be aware of significant changes in the law that affect employer policies.

Join attorneys from Foster Pepper’s Employment & Labor group to discuss updates that you should consider for your employee handbook. Topics will include:

    • Avoiding NLRB attacks on employers’ social media policies
    • Adjusting policies in light of marriage equality
    • Assuring compliance with local ordinances requiring paid sick and safe time
    • Assessing use of interns and independent contractors
    • Amending drug policies in light of legalization of marijuana in Washington
    • Adapting policies to new technologies
    • Altering language to preserve at-will employment

The speakers will take questions from the audience following the presentation. If you have a question you would like addressed, please email Price Herriage-Wilson at by Thursday, April 16, 2015.

CLE (attorney) credit pending.
Certificate of completion available for other organizations.
