Synopsis:
Every year, hundreds of employment laws are added or changed at both the federal and state levels. As an employer, you must be 100% compliant with all of these laws 100% of the time, and your employee handbook is your most powerful tool for complying with all of these laws. But will your HR practices and employee handbook protect your organization, like a shield, from liability and lawsuits?

During this presentation, CEDR HR Solutions CEO Paul Edwards will discuss which employment laws are the riskiest to get wrong and alert you to areas where independent employers can get into trouble. He will also cover the best hiring techniques, why having a “living” employee handbook is critical, how often you should expect to update your policies and job descriptions, ways to avoid misclassifying your employees, and what you can to do mitigate 95% of common employee upsets that often lead to lawsuits.

Paul Edwards is the co-founder and CEO of CEDR HR Solutions (Center for Employment Dispute Resolution), together with Douglass Lodmell.

Paul has over 20 years of experience as a manager and business owner. He is well-known throughout the dental community for his expertise and specialty in helping dentists successfully handle employee issues and safely navigate the complex and ever-changing employment and labor law landscape.
