Employee Handbooks

Employee handbooks allow employers to get things off on the right foot with new employees. They also act as a useful communications tool between current employees and management. By properly setting expectations for workplace behaviors, work habits and performance, companies may help to eliminate employee relations issues with a well written and legally compliant employee handbook. Below, we have detailed some of the most important elements of an employee handbook. However, we don’t recommend that employers go it alone as there are federal, state and local laws guiding employment practices. New Focus HR assists employers with creating more than 50 legally compliant employee handbooks every year. Let us help you!
