An employee handbook is an employer’s contract with its employees and sets the tone and expectations of a successful employer-employee relationship. Employers are encouraged to have a detailed, well-written employee handbook accessible to its employees addressing relevant information such as expected standards of conduct, security and safety procedures, Family Medical Leave Act policies, employee benefits, compensation, working hours and attendance, employment hiring and termination policies, social media policies, anti-discrimination mandates, disciplinary procedures, and sexual harassment policies, among others.

Our firm regularly advises clients before and after an employment handbook has been developed to ensure that all policies and procedures are in compliance with current federal and state regulations. We collaborate with our clients to protect their business and to create a more efficient workplace environment.
