The Importance of Clear, Effective Employee Policy Manuals
Both new and current employees must be well-informed about employee policies, and the employer can often establish significant protections by having written and effective employee policies. This can be done either through a policy manual or employee handbook. We recommend that all employees sign an annual form, indicating they have read and understood the employee handbook.
Keeping your employees informed of the employer's policies can help avoid litigation and lawsuits and can be helpful in this litigation if it ever develops.

- Sexual harassment policy
