Do Small Businesses Need Employee Handbooks?

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.

To ensure your employee handbook protects you and your business from potential legal issues, you should consult with an experienced business attorney that is well versed in employment laws.
