New Free Special Report Provides Guidelines for Creating Legally Sound Employee Handbooks
Falls Church, Va. — Your employee handbook can be an invaluable organizational tool — or an employment lawsuit waiting to happen. And in recent years, Congress and state legislatures have been busy enacting laws that directly affect your employee handbook. If you haven’t kept up, your organization could be sued.
“Is your handbook missing something, contradicting another policy, saying too much, using confusing language, over-promising … or worse, simply out-of-date?” asks Business Management Daily’s Senior Web Editor Elizabeth Hall.
Fortunately, Business Management Daily has published a free special report called The Essential Employee Handbook: Sample Policies, Employment Law Issues, Self-Audit Tips to provide guidance for human resources professionals and managers when they’re creating and updating their company’s employee handbook.
With this informative report, professionals will learn:
- How to bullet-proof their employee handbook
- The most common mistakes made when putting together handbooks
- The importance of always including disclaimers in the handbook
- Protecting their employment at-will status
- 4 common policy writing mistakes
- How to create the online version of a handbook
“An employee handbook can be the foundation of employee performance and a shield against lawsuits,” says Hall, “or it can be a ticking time bomb that confuses employees and strips away your legal defenses. It all depends on how well it’s written and put to use.”
