Creating Employee Handbooks For Houston Businesses
Any business entity that has employees should develop an employee handbook to protect the company. As a business law attorney, I am is well-versed in employment law and the basic information that is vital to cover any business. Having an employee handbook could save thousands in legal hassles, avoiding wrongful termination suits, accusations of sexual harassment, unfair treatment, confusion as to holiday or overtime pay and more. I can provide you with a well-written and legally safe employee manual that covers many important aspects of employment with your firm.
Why Have An Employee Handbook?
Companies that do not have an employee manual open the door to arbitraries in the way their business is run. If there is no written policy on vacation time, sick pay, holidays or overtime, this opens the door to interpretations by various employees assuming they have certain compensation that was never intended to be provided.
By meeting with you and establishing the basic policies of your business, we can easily create an employee manual that will leave you covered for many legal issues, such as:
- Equal opportunity
- Procedures for illness
- Sexual harassment
- At will employment
- Drug use
- Family and Medical Leave Act
I will focus on your goals for this employee manual and produce a handbook that is affordable and will stand up to legal challenges. Implementing this employee handbook in your business can lead to greater control over the work environment, with employees knowing where they stand on issues important to them.
