Do We Need an Employee Handbook?

A well-drafted employee handbook should do much more than just orient new employees.

In addition to informing employees about all of the company’s policies, a “smart business” handbook emphasizes the at-will nature of the employment, declares the employer’s expectations about disciplinary actions/termination and acts as a shield to litigation.

Custom subjects that may be covered in your handbook include compensation schedules, dress codes, sick time/paid leave, computers and cell phones, drug and alcohol use, employment of relatives, employee behavior and promotion opportunities.
