Protect Your Business From Employee Disputes
An employee handbook should clearly demonstrate applicable state and federal laws as well as company policies for employees. Important topics to address in an employee handbook can include:
- Sexual harassment
- Wage and hour laws
- Overtime pay
- Holiday pay
- Severance pay
- Sick days
- Disciplinary procedures
- Intellectual property and trade secrets
- Dress code
- The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
In addition, it has become increasingly important to address company policies regarding privacy and the use of computers, the Internet and email. Some businesses are also including policies on the use of social media such as blogs and social networking websites.
Your employee handbook must also explain the grievance or complaint procedure employees should follow. If an employee files a complaint or suit against the company, it is crucial that the company can demonstrate that it had a well-defined handbook in place.
