While the information provided within this handbook is intended to be complete and accurate, it should not be considered legal advice. Employment laws vary from state to state, and it would be impracticable to provide a detailed employment handbook tailored to each locale. The authors and publishers cannot be held responsible for any errors or omissions. This handbook is provided with the understanding that neither the authors nor the publishers are supplying legal or professional advice.
The guidance and participation of a good attorney is invaluable when creating an effective employee handbook. For more information, contact an employment attorney licensed to practice in your area.
The purpose of an employee handbook is to orient new employees with the company. It is a resource that provides answers for the most frequently asked employee questions. Besides informing new employees about company policy, a good handbook emphasizes the at-will nature of the employment and the company’s disciplinary and termination rights. Most importantly, it is a declaration of the employer’s rights and expectations.
