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

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

In fact, if your handbook contains the wrong language, if it’s filled with outdated content, or if you don’t enforce it consistently, you could find yourself facing a myriad of employment-related lawsuits.

New workplace laws on minimum wage, paid sick leave, criminal background investigations (just to name a few) are popping up all the time—and they don't always take effect at the beginning of a new year. As an HR professional you need to communicate these changes with your workforce as the laws become effective, but how often should you revise your employee handbook?
