Detailed and Concise Employee Handbooks
At Kaufman & Forman, P.C., part of our employment law practice includes assisting employers with their employee handbooks or policy manuals. Whether you require drafting, reviewing or recommendations on your employee policy, we can assist you with detailed and concise legal advice.
Importance of Employee Policy Manuals
Both new and current employees must be well-informed of existing 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.
Employee handbook/policy manual issues include:
- Sexual harassment policy
- Discrimination and harassment policy
- Termination policy
- Disciplinary guidelines
- Wage, hours and salary guidelines
- Vacation and sick leave guidelines
- Family and Medical Leave Act policy
- Non-competition and restrictive covenant agreements
