Company policies, procedures, and handbooks are an essential part of business operations.
These documents lay the foundation for a healthy working relationship with employees. Depending on the size, nature, or location of your business, you may be required by law to have certain policies in writing, and some of them may even be required to be in an employee handbook. It is no longer enough that you put a policy or handbook in place and make it available to your employees. Laws are continually being enacted and older laws are revised and interpreted differently over time. As employment laws continue to change, employers need someone in their corner helping to ensure that their handbooks and other personnel policies are up-to-date and compliant with existing rules and regulations, while still meeting the needs, goals, and objectives of their businesses.
