Employers Need to Make Sure Handbook Policies are Compliant with Federal and State Law

January 14, 2019

A variety of changes in state law recently became effective. Have you addressed all of them? Numerous states have enacted laws relating to: paid and unpaid leave requirements, employee reimbursement, sexual harassment, use of biometric information, legalization of marijuana, bans on requesting applicants to provide compensation history or criminal history before a conditional job offer is made, etc. We recommend all employers have their Employee Handbook reviewed on an annual basis by SESCO to ensure compliance with all federal and state requirements.
