How’s your Employee Handbook? Up-to-date? Does it bring you peace of mind?
An employee handbook is a key piece of documentation. It’s not uncommon for companies to go years between handbook updates, and this can lead to unnecessary and potentially expensive exposure to risks. Laws change each and every year. Stay up to date with an Employer’s Guardian customized handbook.
Studies show that when employees are given clear written policies, expectations, and guidelines to follow, their odds of continuing with their employer rise significantly. These same policies reduce the chance of the employee suing their employer.
Ending up in court without a well-drafted employee polices to defend yourself, you’ll fight an uphill battle trying to defend yourself. When it comes to employment law, it isn’t necessarily how Fair you are, but rather knowing the rules, and playing the game by those rules. A quality handbook defines those rules and keeps employees or their legal counsel from attacking any cracks in your armor.

|Introductory Statement, with Mission, Vision, Value Statements customized for your company||Safety and Health including Workplace Surveillance & Monitoring Consent, Ergonomics, Security/Workplace Violence, etc…|
