At Fortson, Bentley and Griffin, our employment law attorneys review, draft and make recommendations with regards to employee handbooks for businesses to ensure they comply with both state and federal laws. Many employers are not aware of the requirements imposed by state and federal laws. At FB&G, it is our practice to ensure that our clients’ handbooks are personalized to their specific business and needs. Handbooks that contain typos, are copied askew, are out of date, contain policies that do not apply to their specific business in whole or in part, or otherwise look sloppy or unprofessional can send a message that the company does not really care about its employees. Copying another company’s handbook or just adopting a handbook you find online, even from a very reputable source, may do more harm than good. In this current regulatory landscape, it is important to take appropriate steps to ensure compliance with all applicable laws and to ensure that your business is accurately advising employees and protecting itself from frivolous claims and violations.
