Legal compliancy gets trickier by the day. New restrictions, prohibitions and limitations require significant revisions to policies commonly found in employee handbooks. As a result, It’s Really Time to Revise Your Employee Handbook This Year!”
The recent Stericycle made by the National Labor Relations Board requires significant revisions to many policies commonly found in employee handbooks. Examples of policies that likely need to be rewritten to be legally compliant with the new NLRB standard, include work rules:
- Restricting employees’ use of social media,
- Restricting criticism, negative comments, and disparagement company management,
- Promoting civility,
- Prohibiting insubordination,
- Requiring confidentiality of investigations and complaints,
- Restricting behaviors such as using cameras or recording devices in the workplace,
- Outlining rules for safety complaints,
- Restricting the use of company communication resources, such as email or Slack,
- Limiting the recording of meetings or the use of smartphones or other devices,
- Restricting meetings with co-workers or the circulation of petitions,
- Limiting comments to the media or government agencies.
