Protecting Your Business and Your Employees
A well-written handbook sets forth your expectations for your employees, and describes what they can expect from your company. It also should describe your legal obligations as an employer, and your employees’ rights. Having your policies in writing will make it easier to resolve problems as they come up, and help protect both your business and your employees.
Employers of all sizes need a thorough and state specific employee handbook to ensure compliance with state and federal employment law.
We stay current with the latest state laws and regulations and how they relate to your business. We guide you through the process and protect you from potential pitfalls, giving you security and peace of mind.
In addition to being state specific it is important to make sure that your employee handbook is company specific. Requirements and issues vary between companies. Make sure that your employee handbook “fits your company”. For example:
- Will a single handbook work for your entire workforce, or might you need a second one for Marketing and PR personnel with different guidelines for use of email and social media?
- Will certain employees need to have a Non-Disclosure Agreement and Conflict of Interest Statements included in their handbook?
Not being aware of and properly addressing these and many other issues can be costly.
We work with you to determining what should be included in your employee handbook.
The best, and our recommended method is a comprehensive Risk Assessment.
