An employee handbook sets clear expectations for your employees while also stating your legal obligations and defining employee rights. It can help protect your business against employee lawsuits and claims, such as wrongful termination, harassment, and discrimination. The handbook is also a crucial introduction to your business for new hires, providing insights for new hires to understand your mission and values.
Without effective policies and appropriate investigation processes in place, you risk significant liability and damage to the employees’ confidence in their employer. Workplaces are often the subject of intense scrutiny due to their flawed and/or negligent investigation techniques.
