Employee Handbooks and Policies

The Labor & Employment attorneys at Clyde Snow are intent on not only successfully defending employers in the event of litigation, but doing their best to prevent lawsuits. To that end, we are skilled drafters of employee handbooks and policies tailored to our clients’ specific business needs and liability concerns.

We recognize that employee handbooks and policies should set clear expectations for employees while also stating the employer’s legal obligations and defining employee rights. This helps to prevent misunderstandings, complaints, and job dissatisfaction arising out of misinterpretations of personnel and benefit policies and provides a defense against many types of employee lawsuits, including, wrongful termination, harassment, and discrimination. Well-written handbooks and policies provide standardized procedures for how the company will handle internal communications and encourage consistency among company divisions and managers.

The skilled drafters at Clyde Snow provide clients with handbooks that (1) introduce employees to the culture, mission and values of the company; (2) communicate to employees what is expected of them; (3) educate employees about what they can expect from management and leadership; (4) ensure key company policies are clearly and consistently communicated; (5) showcase benefits offered by the company; (6) ensure compliance with federal and state law; (7) help defend against employee claims; and (8) provide an internal reporting procedure for employees.

We stay apprised of all relevant aspects of employment law to ensure that our clients’ handbooks and policies remain up-to-date and continue to provide the maximum protection for their businesses. We also provide annual reviews and updates for employee handbooks and policies in accordance with changes in state and federal law.
