Employment Policies and Handbooks
Employee handbooks are crucial in today’s human resources landscape. A handbook will communicate your company’s policies and procedures in an efficient and effective way. Providing definitive and universal employment rules these handbooks both benefit employees and the employer. The employee is provided guidance and assurance that all employees will receive equal treatment while the handbook provides companies with important legal protections.
We work closely with our clients to draft, develop, and review each company’s policies and procedures and carefully craft the handbook to meet the needs of the individual business. We collaborate and strategize with management to draft policies that meet individual needs while simultaneously meeting any statutory requirements (such as state and local leave policies) and maximizing defenses a handbook could ultimately provide to the client.
State law requirements differ across the jurisdictions and our attorneys are well versed in creating handbooks that meet the needs of each company while complying with sometimes competing federal, state and local laws.
