Handbooks and Social Media Policies – Philadelphia

October 18, 2018 at 8:00 am EDT

 

Thursday, October 18th

8:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.

at Offit Kurman
1801 Market Street, Suite 2300
Philadelphia, PA 19103

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.

ABOUT THE PRESENTERS

Ms. Batista is a Labor & Employment attorney that assists her clients when deciding issues like: If my employee has exhausted her FMLA leave and remains out, am I required to hold her position open? Can I terminate my employee for testing positive for marijuana? Will this non-compete agreement be enforced? She helps her clients answer these and similar questions, and vigorously defends their decisions. She represents businesses, such as restaurants, hotels, banks, retailers and health care providers, in the spectrum of employment and labor claims. Specifically, Ms. Batista successfully defends employers against claims of discrimination and harassment, retaliation, wrongful terminations and wage, and hour violations. An employee’s post-separation conduct often requires legal advice and action too. Ms. Batista commonly represents her clients in bringing actions for breach of restrictive covenants and contractual interference, as well as defends them against such claims. Employment and labor law is ever changing. Employers need to feel secure in how they manage their employees so they can focus on their business. Ms. Batista affords her clients that security.

Zach Glaser concentrates his practice in the areas of labor and employment and business litigation. Zach’s broad litigation experience includes complex commercial matters, business torts, employment litigation and intellectual property disputes, including contract claims, defending employment discrimination claims, the enforcement of non-competition and non-solicitation agreements, federal and state unfair competition claims, defense of Fair Labor Standards Act claims, franchise and distribution disputes, lender liability and FINRA matters, professional negligence and medical malpractice defense, and all manners of intellectual property litigation, including trade secret matters, Computer Fraud and Abuse Act cases, e-commerce, trademarks, copyrights and patent litigation.

Mr. Celii devotes his practice to representing businesses and municipal entities navigating labor and employment disputes ranging from wage and hour litigation and work place discrimination defense to labor negotiations and the resolution of grievances. During his representation of Philadelphia-area Townships and Counties, he has successfully defended claims brought against public officials and advised municipalities on the drafting of local ordinances, such as Police Pension DROP amendments.
