Establishing and maintaining employee handbooks or manuals is fundamental to the operation of all organizations which engage human resources. Establishing standards, policies and responsibilities for employees in handbooks allows an employer to communicate a clear, consistent message to employees. Handbooks identify for employees, benefits and policies of the workplace. Finally, and fundamental for every business, employee handbooks providing standards for employee conduct and responsibilities are the basis for responding to claims made by employees, including unemployment and conduct-related claims. Developing proactive management practices identified in employee handbooks help create a model of success for any business.
Representatives from Fishel Hass Kim Albrecht Downey Law will review the topics that are important and should be in every handbook, topics which are beneficial and are likely to be included, and those topics not to include.
