Running a business has never been easy. This is especially true today when there is an ever-increasing amount of rules and regulations that business owners and managers must comply with. Many of the laws that are important for businesses to stay up to date on, concern employee relations. Employers have a many legal obligations when it comes to their employees. Employees are also obligated to follow the employment policies of the company that they work with. A Connecticut employment lawyer can help you create an employee handbook that will keep your company in compliance with both state and federal law.
A well drafted employee handbook can protect both the employer and the employee if problems arise in the future. An employee handbook should describe exactly what the company policies are concerning things such as:
- employee probationary periods
- dress codes
- sick days
- employee benefits
- paid/unpaid leave for special circumstances (military, jury duty, maternity, etc)
- company’s disciplinary and grievance procedures
- provide information confirming the company is an Equal Opportunity Employer
