Employee handbooks are an essential tool in managing employee relations and successfully operating your business. Along with relevant employment laws and regulations, your handbook should provide an employee with up-to-date information on workplace culture, benefits, and compensation.
Handbooks are also an important resource for supervisors and managers to rely on when setting expectations and managing performance. Because of this, they should be detailed and comprehensive, but also flexible enough to allow managers and supervisors some discretion when managing employees.
Any company that has at least one employee is subject to an array of federal, state, and local laws. If you have remote employees who work in different states, you must follow the regulations for those locations as well.
