Employee Handbooks
National Summary
Employee handbooks are widely used by employers as an efficient way to communicate basic information to employees about company policies and the employment relationship. Certain policies included in an employee handbook are required by law or provide legal protections to the employer. Other policies in the employee handbook provide information to the employee about the company, employee benefits, such as leave of absence and vacation, and what is expected of the employee, including workplace conduct, timekeeping, attendance, and other important issues. A properly drafted employee handbook can be a valuable communication tool, provided employers take steps to avoid the legal problems that can arise when the handbook is not properly drafted.
