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.
Some policies may simply provide general notice and details of employee rights as required by state and federal laws.
Other policies in the employee handbook may provide additional information about the company and its mission; discuss employee benefits such as paid time off; clarify expectations of staff, including workplace conduct, timekeeping, attendance, and other important issues; and even provide legal protections to the employer itself.
A properly drafted employee handbook can be a valuable communication tool provided that employers take steps to avoid the legal problems that can arise when the handbook is not properly drafted.
