We develop customized, state-specific handbooks to communicate policies and benefits to employees and help your company comply with state and federal employment regulations.
Employee handbooks are your first line of defense against charges of discrimination and favoritism. They contain the policies, behavioral expectations, and procedure to guide employee action in the workplace, making your workers feel that they are treated equally.
Managers and supervisors can save much time if common issues—such as short-term disability insurance, time-off, and dress code—are mentioned explicitly in a manual.
Invest in an employee handbook for frictionless management.
Yes. Although not legally required, they may as well be for a variety of reasons.
First, there are policies, which vary based on your company’s size, location, and industry, which you need to communicate to employees. Doing this in one document, such as an employee handbook, is an efficient way to comply.
Second, try beating an unemployment claim without a defined policy. We know of one company who lost an unemployment claim for an employee who, with a company car and on company business, got in a high-speed chase with a police officer. Unemployment ruled in the employee’s favor because the employer did not have a policy stating that employees have to comply with laws while using company property. True story.
Third, and the list really can go on and on, an employee handbook facilitates compliance because policies are spelled out for everyone, so the propensity for variance and endless clarification are lessened.
It was an extreme pleasure hearing you speak on Monday. I have been going to this conference for the last three years, and I must tell you that it was the best session I have ever attended the event. You are a great speaker and engaging, as you have the talent of connecting with your audience. As I was walking out, I could hear almost everyone in the room speaking about your presentation, and they had the same sentiments. Hope to see you again next year!
