The Employer’s Guide to Company Policies

In this fast-paced course focused on policy you’ll learn:

  • What to cover.

    A complete checklist of topics you must address, including what’s new for 2021.

  • How to say it.

    And what not to say (plus sample wording).

  • How to share it.

    A smart and legal way to make sure your entire company understands.

The simplest way to solve productivity, profitability and legal concerns

Turns out, rules really do work. When you have your company policies up to date and clearly communicated, the business just runs … well, a whole lot better. And of course, you’ll sleep better at night knowing you won’t wake up to a lawsuit or a productivity-draining workplace conflict to sort out.


It’s never been easier – or more affordable (don’t call that lawyer!) – to get in compliance and in control of your company policies. In the 75-minute webinar The Employer’s Guide to Company Policies, employment lawyer Anniken Davenport will provide the policy know-how you need to quickly create and communicate reliable policies that any member of your staff can understand.

Agenda for The Employer's Guide to Company Policies

  • Workday rules. Learn how to spell out what you expect – including how to dress, how to behave with coworkers and customers, when to arrive and when to leave – so there’s no confusion. Get specific with examples.
  • Time off. Make it easy for employees to meet your expectations while building in some flexibility. Plus, understand a clear way to integrate FMLA and your PTO policies, including setting the rules for prior approval and emergency call-offs.
  • Employment policies and employee conduct. You need a fair and equitable disciplinary policy. Learn exactly what must be included. Will it be a progressive disciplinary process with opportunities to wipe out past discipline? Can and should you include elements of zero tolerance?
  • Workplace issues. Employees will have conflicts with coworkers, customers and supervisors – now more than ever. Create simple policies that manage that conflict and work towards creating an overall positive workplace without triggering DOL, EEOC or NLRB scrutiny. Plus, make sure employees understand your harassment prevention and control policies so you have a chance to respond before you’re sued.
  • Communication and buy-in. Steps to take to make sure your policies are clearly communicated and understood, and that your employees commit to them.
