Best Practices in Developing a Workers' Compensation Handbook
Legal consultation will doubly verify the handbook as a binding resource.
Employers looking to deploy a Workers' Compensation handbook likely know exactly where to go to find the existing law, but they may not be aware of the best practices to execute when turning the law into a sensible handbook for company employees. In general, though, there are some key sections and blocks of content that should appear in every workers' compensation handbook, no matter the state where the employer is based or the location where the employee is working. Following these best practices will make the handbook easier to use, and it will clarify whether or not employees can expect to file a valid claim under the state compensation program or whether their grievances are best addressed by pursuing another legal avenue outside the workers' compensation framework.
