Uses and Misuses of Employee Handbooks


Legal problems may follow when an employer tries to use an employee handbook for broader purposes than just communicating information.

If you do not have an employee handbook, you should consider whether it makes sense to adopt one.  If you already have an employee handbook, you should evaluate whether the handbook is playing an appropriate role.  This white paper provides some common reasons why employers choose to have an employee handbook, as well as some common misuses of employee handbooks.
