Employee Handbook Guide

An employee handbook is an important tool you can use to effectively communicate information regarding your company's policies, practices, and employee benefits. A well-written handbook sets forth your expectations for your employees and describes what they can expect from your company.

While the policies outlined in your handbook will reflect your company's own unique culture, it is important to consider federal, state and local laws and regulations that may affect your business when drafting your employee handbook. You may want to create multiple handbooks if you have both exempt and non-exempt employees and/or unionized employees. The employee handbook is the single most important internal document that lays out the policies of your company to each and every one of your employees.  As such, it is important to have employment counsel review the handbook before you distribute it.

The following are topics you should consider including in your employee handbook.
