Employee handbooks are a “must have” for every California employer. A good hand book can protect both employer and employee by defining employer expectations and giving the employee important guidelines to follow. By starting off your relationship with a new employee with a well written and compliant handbook, you show them that you care about them, their rights, and your legal obligations.
Some of the mistakes that employers make are not having a handbook, not having one that is legally compliant, or not following the guidelines set forth in their own handbook. Integrity HR knows that a handbook created specifically for your company is a vital tool for the growth of your business.
Some of the topics that should be covered in a well written handbook include:
- Company history and mission statement welcoming the employee
- Recruiting and hiring
- Employment classifications
- Orientation and training
- Hours and flex time policies
- Internet access
- Termination procedures
- Anti-Discrimination policy
- Holidays, vacations, and leave
- Standards of conduct
- Background checks and drug testing
At Integrity HR we can review your current handbook and suggest updates or we can start from scratch and craft a document just for you.
