When’s the last time your employee handbook was updated?

Was it within the last six months? No? Then your handbook is a liability.

There’s been a lot of activity in 2016 – FLSA changes, NLRB lawsuits, states legalizing marijuana, LGBT focus, and paid sick leave and domestic violence leave laws passing around the country.

If your handbook contains the wrong language, if it’s filled with outdated content, or if you don’t enforce it consistently, you could find yourself facing a myriad of employment-related lawsuits.

Your policies are the front-line of your defense against legal action from your workforce. The language you use, and the provisions you include, can make or break a lawsuit — and may even stop disputes before they arise.
