From hiring and promotions to discipline and termination, the employment cycle can be a long and often winding road. Every step of the way, effective compliance requires that HR professionals understand their legal obligations under a myriad of federal, state, and local laws. This is no easy task in an environment where workplace law – from the west coast to the east coast – is constantly expanding, and employers’ obligation are continually increasing. For this reason, it is vital for HR professionals to periodically review their current practices to ensure that they are on top of ever-changing laws, the latest legal developments, and employing the best practices.

In this practical webinar, you will learn:

  • The ABC’s of conducting an HR Audit from the beginning of the employment relationship to the end
  • How to identify and remedy inadequate policies and practices that may be creating legal vulnerabilities or failing to meet company objectives, such as lack of diversity
  • How to develop appropriate policies and practices in response to new and emerging legal mandates and unsettled law, such as:
    • “Ban-the-box,” salary history inquiries
    • Paid sick time
    • LGBTQ issues
  • The importance of understanding and complying with the growing body of local laws that are playing an ever-larger role in creating employee rights and employer obligations

Upon course completion, you will be able to:

  • Conduct a thorough audit of your company’s HR policies and practices (in all applicable offices, as well as for remote employees)
  • Analyze policies and practices for legality and effectiveness
  • Bring legally noncompliant policies into compliance
  • Address legal obligations for which you currently do not have policies or practices;
  • Anticipate and plan ahead with respect to emerging legal issues and company goals

What is a webinar?

A webinar is simply a seminar that you attend online. You either watch a live video feed of the speaker or listen to the speaker through your computer, tablet or phone’s audio.  You see the speaker’s slides, videos, and other presentation materials on your screen.

Can I ask questions during the webinar?

Yes. During the live webinar, you may submit questions and comments and the speaker will respond verbally. For a recorded webinar, your questions will be emailed to the speaker. You will typically receive a response from the speaker within two business days.

Can I attend using a tablet or smartphone?

Yes. You may attend a webinar using a computer, tablet or smartphone.

If I can’t attend a webinar live, can I view the recording later?

Yes. Shortly after each live program ends, we send all webinar registrants a link to the webinar recording. You can view the recording as many times as you like after the live webinar for up to 12 months.

What is an on-demand webinar?

An on-demand webinar is a previously recorded webinar that you may view at any time after your purchase for up to 12 months.

Can I stop a recorded webinar and start it later at the same point?

You can stop a recording and later log back in and navigate to any point in the webinar. The system will not force you to view the entire recording from start to finish.

Can I listen to recorded webinars on a tablet or smartphone?

Yes. You will be able to listen to any of our on-demand webinars on your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Is there a deadline to register for a webinar?

You can register for a live webinar up until the time the webinar begins.

Am I able to pay by check or through a Purchase Order?

Yes. Register normally and choose the “pay by check” option. We will then email you an invoice. You can email any Purchase Order numbers to us.

Can I view the webinar even if Clear Law Institute has not yet received my check?

If you are paying by check or using a Purchase Order, you may view the live or recorded webinar even if we have not yet received payment.

To complete the payment process, what if I need Clear Law Institute’s W-9 or vendor registration forms completed?

If you need any additional forms or information to complete the payment process, please call us at 703-372-0550 or contact us.

I have not received an email with instructions on accessing the webinar.  What should I do?

You can also access the webinar by logging into your account and clicking on “Attend Webinar.” If you still cannot locate the Event URL, please call us at 703-372-0550 or contact us and we will make sure you receive the instructions immediately.

Do the webinars qualify for Continuing Education Credit?

Almost all of our webinars are approved for continuing education credit, including CLE (in all states), CCB, CPE, HRCI, IRS and SHRM credit.  Unlike many providers, we don’t charge you any additional fee to process your credit.  If you have specific questions, please call us at 703-372-0550 or contact us.

Can I still receive Continuing Education Credits if I view the webinar recording instead of the live presentation?

In most cases, the answer is yes. Recorded webinars are not eligible for CLE credit in the following states: AR, KS, MS, NE, and RI. In all other jurisdictions, recorded programs are eligible for credit. In addition, CPE credit is not available for recorded webinars. Please note that recorded webinars are only eligible for a certain period of time based on the jurisdiction. To ask about your specific type of Continuing Education Credit or the requirements in your jurisdiction, please call us at 703-372-0550 or contact us.

Will I receive a certificate of completion after the course?

Yes. A certificate of completion will automatically be uploaded to your Clear Law Institute account after completing the live or on-demand webinar.

Do I need to be a member to receive a certificate of completion?

No. An account will automatically be created for you when registering for a webinar. You will then be able to access your certificate of completion after completing a webinar.

How do I determine my states’s CLE requirements.

Please find your state listed here with instructions for calculating the number of credits in your state.

How will I submit my attendance to receive CLE credit in my state?

Please find your state listed here with instructions for confirming your CLE attendance.

All of this information will be kept in your account so that you can easily track your webinar registrations and continuing education credits.

I downloaded my certificate of completion, but it doesn’t have my continuing education information listed on it.

You may need to update your continuing education profile. You can do this in your account under the My Profile tab. Once updated, this information will be automatically updated on your certificates.

I can’t find my account password.
