Documenting employee policies and procedures is the best way to prevent employee disputes and retaliation on a host of issues. Our employment lawyers assist employers in developing, drafting, and implementing employee handbooks and policies.
At a minimum, good policy provides straightforward guidance on expectations in the workplace and it offers clear explanation on prohibited conduct, avenues for complaints and assurances for prompt and thorough investigation and complaint resolution.
Written policies and procedures, as well as methods for documenting handbook or policy manual distribution to employees, offer a basic level protection for employers. Providing supervisor and employee training goes even further to create a workplace where employees feel safe.
Employee handbooks and policies, developed with the assistance of a qualified employment lawyer, will help ensure compliance with state and federal laws and administrative agency regulations, and may become part of your defense in employee disputes or lawsuits.
