Make--or update--your employee handbook today with this user-friendly guide Every company should have an employee handbook to communicate with employees, manage workers effectively, ensure consistent treatment across the organization, and protect itself from lawsuits.

But creating a handbook from scratch can be daunting--and hiring a lawyer to draft one can easily cost thousands of dollars. That's where Create Your Own Employee Handbook can help. It provides everything managers or HR professionals need to create an effective handbook--or update an existing one--all in plain English. Inside, you'll find up-to-date legal information, practical suggestions, and policy language on:

  • wages and hours
  • at-will employment
  • time off
  • discrimination and harassment
  • email, social media, mobile devices, and other workplace technology
  • drugs and alcohol
  • complaints and investigations
  • workplace privacy
  • and much more.

The 10th edition is completely updated to include federal and state law changes affecting employer policies, such as paid sick leave (including time off for reasons relating to the coronavirus); minimum wage laws (including rules for employees who receive cash tips); drug and alcohol testing (including medical and legal marijuana laws); discrimination; family and medical leave; and much more. The 10th edition also provides policy language and legal information on working from home, a vitally important topic in the age of Covid-19.
