As an employer, it is critical that you have legally compliant and enforceable policies and procedures for your employees. An employee handbook provides employees an overview of policies that are specific to your company, in addition to other relevant information such as employee benefits. In short, an employee handbook sets specific expectations for your employees while also ensuring that you comply with the law. Perhaps most importantly, the employee handbook can help protect your business against employee lawsuits and claims, such as wage and hour violations, wrongful termination, harassment, and discrimination. An employee handbook also introduces new employees to your company culture and values.
It can be daunting drafting an employee handbook on your own as California employment law has a myriad of statutes and regulations that must be adhered to. Our attorneys at White and Bright, LLP have honed their employee handbook drafting skills to not only provide a clear and concise outline of policies and benefits for your company, but White and Bright, LLP’s attorneys will ensure that any handbook is legally compliant with all applicable laws and reflects your culture and values as a company.
