Handbooks and Social Media Policies – Baltimore
October 3, 2018 at 8:00 am EDT
Wednesday, October 3rd
8:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.
at Offit Kurman
300 E. Lombard Street, Suite 2010
Baltimore, MD 21202
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) breakfast 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 breakfast briefing.
