One of the best ways for employers to minimize employment disputes and to avoid potential claims is to establish an Employee Handbook. An Employee Handbook defines workplace expectations through the establishment of employment policies and procedures. An effectively drafted Employee Handbook acts as the first defense in any employee’s claims. It serves as evidence that the employer has implemented standard procedures to prevent unlawful activities such as discrimination or harassment.
