It is a good idea for all businesses that have employees to put together at least a simple employee handbook that outlines companies policies and addresses any state employment laws.
Taking a little time to put together an employee handbook can save a business from expensive legal situations down the road.
Some areas you may want to include in an employee handbook, would include:
- Any business policies you may have.
- Outline employee expectations.
- Outline the employees rights.
Having a well-created employee handbook can help you defend against employee lawsuits if they arise because you will be able to show that the employee was fully aware of company policies.
