Electronic Employee Handbooks: Benefits, Risks and Opportunities
Is your employee handbook still an actual book?
If so, you're living in the paper past.
Converting to a digital handbook will cut costs, make updating easier and — most importantly — erase many of the legal dangers associated with paper handbooks.
But e-handbooks involve more than just transferring written documents into a database. One wrong move can actually inject a host of new legal risks.
How should you make the conversion? … What about the authorization signatures? … Where do you post it (public web? in-house network?)… How do you announce new changes (email? online? paper?) … What about passwords?
