In short? YES. A professionally written employee handbook, when kept up-to-date and in compliance with all state and federal laws that apply to you, is the cornerstone of your HR management and compliance. It’s the go-to resource for you and your employees when it comes to office rules, legal compliance, and what to do in day-to-day workplace situations.
Professionally written employee handbooks also tend to discourage frivolous lawsuits. The case against an employer becomes much more difficult when there is an updated and compliant employee handbook in place.
When it comes to employee handbooks, “one-size-fits-all” doesn’t really fit anybody. A generic employee handbook or template found online is not as effective as one written specifically for your business, and is often risky to use. Here are just a few reasons why:
It’s twofold. First, lawsuit avoidance. Whenever an urgent HR issue pops up suddenly, having a trusted advisor you can call to walk you through the situation can mean the difference between a headache and an expensive settlement. A true HR expert will let you know the laws that apply and alert you to the associated risks with each possible response.
Second, it’s the peace of mind. Whether it’s a simple question or a more complex situation, knowing an HR expert is only a short phone call or email away means you can proceed through your day and interactions without worry.
