Top 10 Employee Handbook Mistakes  

Producing and distributing an employee handbook i​s one of the best ways to protect your business from employee lawsuits and clearly communicate your company policies. The absence of a formal employee handbook or company policy manual, or a poorly drafted handbook, puts your company at risk for costly lawsuits and fines.

Policies that are too specific and rigid can potentially limit an employer’s flexibility when dealing with real issues. Conversely, policies that are too general make it difficult for employers to hold employees accountable for their actions and behavior.
