Company policies and guidelines compliant with state and federal employment laws

Done correctly, the employee handbook is a foundational component of your business– providing significant value to both the employer and employee, including:

  • An introduction for new employees to the policies, procedures and culture of
    your company
  • A helpful tool for employees and supervisors to understand and consistently
    adhere to organizational practices
  • A reliable basis for employee performance management and
    disciplinary actions
  • Legal evidence that your company’s policies are consistent with and encourage adherence to employment laws


Customized employee handbook

Your Custom Employee Handbook starts with a foundation of policies and statements that has been expertly crafted to comply with your company’s local, state, and federal employment laws. Unlike many employee handbooks, our approach to content emphasizes a friendly, approachable tone with phrasing that is easily comprehended by employees. To ensure your Custom Employee Handbook reflects the local laws and practices of your organization, we conduct a thorough interview and then skillfully tailor the content to align with your company’s organizational practices. The final product is delivered electronically–ready to be printed or posted electronically to your company’s employee self-service area.
