Employee Handbooks Are Key
In today’s business and legal climate, having a legally-sound employee handbook is vitally important. Whether you are a small firm with ten employees or a large corporation with many offices, a well-written employee handbook can help reduce legal liabilities. The Oasis Handbook clearly outlines and documents the following:
- The duties and rights of employees
- The authority and obligations of the employer
- Employee benefits, guidelines and workplace expectations
- Processes, policies and procedures
By applying policies uniformly, you minimize employee/employer disputes. Specifying policies allows employees and managers to practice them so they become second nature. This allows you to minimize misunderstandings and ultimately provides both prevention and defense of litigation (including harassment and discrimination claims).
Having an Oasis-drafted employee handbook also helps you increase efficiency and productivity and fosters a working environment governed by fair and consistent rules. The provision of an Employee Handbook is a service provided free of charge to all PEO clients.
