Employee Handbook Service

How It Works

You know that having a good employee handbook is important.  You want to protect your business in case there are employee lawsuits.  You want to have standard policies that are fair for all.  You need to communicate the company culture, what makes the business go.

How do you get this done?

You don’t.  We do it for you.

We have written or revised hundreds of employee handbooks, crafting each one to meet specific company needs.  This is not “boilerplate” with your company name inserted – we discuss your needs in advance, ask the right questions to make sure that we understand your company culture, and then create a handbook that provides legal protection while communicating valuable information to your employees.
