Employee Handbook Creator
Makes your life so much easier and affordable!
If you’re looking for an employee handbook creator for your business to establish solid rules and policies for your employees, then you should take a look at Standard Legal. What I like most about Standard Legal is the ease in which you can put together an employee manual and the cost is unbelievably low. When I first started looking into all the various employee handbook creators on the market I found out you can pay a lot of money for some. Most if not all claimed to be written by employment law attorney's and approved for all states. I made telephone calls and sent emails asking a lot of questions.
At the end of the day I found no difference in Standard Legal's employee handbook creator and theirs, with the one big exception. The price! My budget was small and every dime I invested in my business had to make sense. Why would I want to pay three or four times more for an employee handbook creator that did basically the same thing.
Remember creating an employee handbook is the first step in establishing a since of order. Just like placing a speed limit sign up! Until the sign is put up no one knows how fast they can go!
Think first about all the policies and rules that you feel your business should have! Let’s just list a few that you may want to consider;
VACATION LEAVE POLICY
ATTENDANCE AND SICK POLICY
WRITTEN WARNING NOTICE
WORKPLACE VIOLENCE POLICY
DRUG AND ALCOHOL FREE WORKPLACE
OFFICE EQUIPMENT AND COMPUTER USE
Leave of Absence
EQUAL OPPORTUNITY AND AFFIRMATIVE ACTION POLICY
This is just the tip of the ice berg. When looking for an employee handbook creator take a look at how many different prewritten policies they include that allow you to modify to your specific business. Standard Legal's has everyone of these policies for you to use as is or modify to your specific needs. This will make it easy to consider even policies that you have not even thought of before. The next very important factor is to make sure that the software producer that is creating the employee handbook understands employee law! This means for the most part that an attorney has either written the software or has played an important part in producing it.
You must also consider that depending on the size of your business there are requirements for you to include certain things in your employee handbook. Things such as sexual harassment, discrimination, and others! So as you consider which handbook creator you are going to use make sure they other updates that will allow you to update your policies as the laws change. This will be a little harder to find but if you are not familiar with the laws they may change and leave your employee handbook out of date. Take for example the AB1825 law that California implemented several years ago.
I would also recommend that you consider an employee handbook creator that offers all the necessary employment posters that are also required for certain size businesses. With all the requirements out there today, ignorance is not acceptable even if the laws are complicate. If you’re running a business you are expected to know! It may not seem fair, but that doesn’t matter in the eyes of the law. Therefore, choose a handbook creator that offers the entire package, including various employment forms such as applications, discipline, evaluation forms, etc.
Good Luck and May God Bless You!
