If you don’t have an employee handbook, do you need one? If you do have one, have you avoided pitfalls that could give rise to claims against your company? If written correctly and followed consistently, handbooks can be an effective tool to communicate with and educate employees. Companies may use them to defend against a variety of employee claims, particularly discrimination complaints. Employee handbooks can also expose companies to potential litigation and liability, tie management”s hands, and give rise to morale problems. In this podcast, Susan Sheeran, a partner with Melli Law, S.C., provides a general overview of employee handbooks, including practical tips on how to make your handbook an effective management tool.
