Employee Handbooks

A comprehensive, well-written employee handbook serves as a foundation of workplace procedures, a defense against frivolous lawsuits, and a compelling public relations tool. A solid employee handbook accomplishes all of the following and more: 

  • Serves as a communication tool for new hires and existing employees regarding policies, practices, and promotes employee benefit plans
  • Helps guarantee consistent treatment of workplace issues 
  • Informs employees about critical policies such as harassment avoidance, leaves of absence, drug, alcohol and tobacco use, Equal Employment Opportunity, e-mail and Internet use, business ethics, rules of conduct and disciplinary procedures
  • Gives supervisors a handy reference for and reduces time spent responding to questions about policies and procedures 
  • Provides deterrents to and defenses in litigation of workplace disputes

Equal Employment Opportunity Investigations

In today's workplace, Equal Employment Opportunity (or EEO) investigations are required in response to employee complaints of harassment and discrimination. Failure to quickly and effectively investigate these complaints can have serious consequences for employers. If an employer responds ineffectively or inappropriately to a complaint, it gives rise to additional employer liability, regardless of whether wrongdoing actually occurred. Poorly conducted investigations can also result in negative publicity, low employee morale, and reduced productivity due to the distraction.
