Q. I just joined a new company that’s never had an employee handbook and doesn’t seem interested in doing so. Do we have to create one? — K.D., Colorado
A. You are not legally required to have a handbook. But it is very useful, both in providing legal protections for the company and as an HR tool. You can contact your attorney or an HR organization to get started. Be sure to have an attorney familiar with state labor and employment laws review it before you implement the handbook.
One good resource: HR Specialist has created a Do-It-Yourself Employee Manual binder and CD set that lets you create a manual or update your own. For more information, click here.
