Do I Really Need an Employee Handbook?

April 7, 2022by People First0

The answer is yes! Even the smallest business of say two or more employees should have an employee handbook.
Employee handbooks are critical for many different reasons.
First, it’s a communication tool for the employees to know what’s expected of them. It tells them about pay cycles and other payroll matters, time off policies, hours of work, holidays, and what to do in the case of an on-the-job injury. It is the one manual that should contain everything you wanted to know about your employment but were afraid to ask.
Handbooks provide a defensibility should there ever be any type of litigation. They are very useful if there’s ever any type of lawsuit. The handbook shows that the employer has taken its role seriously as an employer and is communicating the expectations to its employees.
Handbooks are also helpful when it comes to unemployment claims. Many times, I’ve been asked to provide the employee handbook when an employee has disputed a claim.
If you have more questions, I suggest consulting with an experienced HR professional.
