Employee handbooks provide important company information that is valuable to both new and seasoned employees, ensure that all individuals are treated consistently with regard to company policies and procedures, and can protect the company from potential lawsuits. An effective handbook is thorough, up to date, legally compliant, readily available and easy to understand.
However, unless employees know what policies and rules are included in their company’s handbook, and these policies are updated regularly to reflect legislation changes, it will not be nearly as effective. Failing to keep a handbook updated is consistently one of the top mistakes employers make with their handbooks. AUI has a number of resources to help clients keep their handbooks up to date.
