EMPLOYEE HANDBOOKS

Many handbooks unintentionally create liability for employers. Some of the pitfalls include language that:

  • nullifies the at-will status of employees,

  • obligates employers to use progressive discipline,

  • creates expectations of privacy that can be used against employers, 

  • omits protections for drug testing and background investigations, creates discriminatory policies,

  • makes promises without disclaimers,

  • promotes improper wage and hour policies, etc.

Employment litigation is too costly to ignore, and employers should make every effort to avoid it. A well-drafted handbook can limit potential liability and provide smother operations for employers.
