Employee Handbooks

Services that fit your needs.

Employee handbooks are an important communication tool.

Organizations have concrete expectations from each employee. Each organization’s policy, mission, and goals should be clear to every new hire from the beginning of their tenure with the company. An Employee Handbook provides a detailed, documented explanation of these expectations as well as what a new employee can expect from their organization. We believe that a well written employee handbook is one of the most critical elements to communicate employee rights and responsibilities as well as maintain compliance in key areas. Employee handbooks also maintain consistency in administration of policies and practices by managers and supervisors of the organization.

Providing a tailored approach to each employee handbook.

The employee handbooks we create for our clients are designed to promote the benefits of employment in their organizations, lay out specific behavioral expectations, and prevent surprises that may tarnish an organization’s reputation or lead to disputes. We customize each client’s employee handbook, and the final results can vary greatly. 

Here are some common elements in each of the employee handbooks we write for our clients:

  • An overview of company history, mission, and vision
  • A welcome message from the senior leader
  • Employment policies
  • Communication and Technology Use
  • Confidentiality
  • Conflict of Interest
  • Prohibited Harassment and Non-Discrimination
  • Drug and Alcohol Policy
  • Pay and hours guidelines including classifications of employment, time reporting, overtime, breaks, and meal periods
  • Paid/unpaid time off and leaves of absence
  • Standards of conduct
  • General information such as the location of the employee services, parking policies,
    use of company cars, personal telephone calls, etc.
  • Leaving the company
  • Employee acknowledgement
