The Benefits of an Employee Handbook

The Benefits of an Employee Handbook

Policies & Procedure vs. Employee Handbook

One of the most valuable tools an employer can have to prevent employment liability claims are comprehensive policies and procedures to guide the organization in all manner of employment practices. One of the best practices an employer can have is a method for ensuring that the organization’s policies are communicated to all staff. Simply stating that the policies exist and that it is the responsibility of the employee to be familiar and comply with the policies may not be enough. A well-written employee handbook will communicate key organizational policies in a format that employees are more likely to read and understand.
