Or whether to issue one at all.
Most major employers in the United States, as well as many small employers, issue employee handbooks. HR experts consistently recommend using employee handbooks as a tool for managing human resources and for abiding with the law. Employers often have a sense of security with a handbook that sets out the company’s benefits, practices, rules and offerings, etc. However, when a U.S. company endeavors to expand abroad, they must determine if an employee handbook is equally important. This white paper reviews the myth of the single global employee handbook and alternatives to handbooks overseas.
