Is your employee handbook missing any key elements?
Learn how employee handbooks can protect both employers and their employees.
Many employers are choosing to have an employee handbook as a best practice and more and more states are recommending an employee handbook, as policies contained in a handbook act as a company’s first line of defense against lawsuits or liability claims.
While a company’s policies are by no means a guarantee that a regulatory agency will never file suit against the company or that a disgruntled former employee will never file a wrongful termination claim, they do provide a layer of protection in the event that something does happen. When implemented and enforced effectively and consistently, the corporate policies contained in a company’s employee handbook help demonstrate that a company is operating ethically and proactively for the benefit and safety of its employees, its shareholders, and the public.
