Create Your Own Employee Handbook: A Legal and Practical Guide

Front Cover
Providing your employees with a handbook that spells out your company's benefits, policies and procedures makes great sense, practically and legally. Create Your Own Employee Handbook provides all the information and policies managers, HR professionals and business owners need to create their own reader-friendly guide. Each chapter covers a different topic, including: at-will employment, hiring, pay and payroll, workdays and hours, performance evaluations, benefits, discrimination and harassment, complaints and investigations, leave, health and safety, substance abuse, privacy in the workplace and discipline. Each chapter first explains the legal and practical considerations that apply to its topic, then supplies sample policies that you can use as-is, or tailor to meet your needs. The CD-ROM lets you cut-and-paste the policies you need to create your own handbook instantly. The 3rd edition is completely updated to include the latest developments in federal and state law, and covers emerging workplace issues such as blogs, camera phones and more.
