On October 16, Davis Malm shareholder Gary Feldman served as a co-presenter for the Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) seminar “Employment Policies.” This program is Unit 7 of MCLE’s 17-part Employment & Labor Law Professional Development Plan series. The seminar focused on how employment policies set forth an employer’s rules, benefits, and general expectations for the workplace, as well as the pitfalls to be aware of with these policies.

Gary and his co-presenter, Laurie Alexander-Krom, provided insight on a variety of topics including:

  • Policies required under Federal and State law and those policies that employers should implement as best practices.
  • Typical employer mistakes and how to avoid them, including language to avoid and disclaimers to include.
  • Impact of Federal Labor Laws on policies for union and non-unionized workforces.
  • When and how often polices and employee guides should be updated.
  • How policies can help and hurt when a legal claim has been filed.
