All employers need a written Employee Handbook, to protect their company from legal risks; set forth policies and procedures to guide employees and supervisors; and provide information on company benefits. Additionally, almost all handbooks that are more than a year or two old need revisions to be in compliance with current federal or state laws or court decisions.
