A well-documented Employee Handbook is key to operating successfully as a company. When done properly, defined policies help protect your organization from inconsistent practices and unnecessary employment claims. Our experienced HR team can develop a comprehensive Employee Handbook for your organization that is based on federal and state law.
There are Employee Handbook changes needed each year based on new regulations, case law, and general operating practices. Highlights of changes for 2015 include:
Employers are encouraged to take immediate action and update their Employee Handbooks. In fact, an employee handbook is one of the best ways to protect your business from employee lawsuits and clearly communicate your company policies. The absence of a formal handbook or policy manual, or a poorly drafted one, puts you at a disadvantage to defend yourself should your business face a lawsuit.
Policies that are too specific and rigid can potentially limit an employer’s flexibility when dealing with real issues. Conversely, policies that are too general make it difficult for employers to hold employees accountable for their actions and behavior.
