An employee handbook is one of the most important communication tools between employers and employees in all types of businesses, large or small. A well-written employee handbook creates uniform practices and policies and provides clear expectations among employees. Most importantly, a properly drafted handbook can limit an employer’s potential liability from claims such as wrongful discharge, discrimination, retaliation or harassment.
GHA can help your business create and implement an effective employee handbook to protect both you and your employees from the potential of litigation. Even if you already have an employee handbook, it is important to have it reviewed and updated periodically to reflect changes in your business and the law. Additionally, keep in mind that an employee handbook is not a substitute for employment agreements, which we recommend you consider for key employees.
