Titusville, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/10/2013 -- The Lindenberger Group, an award-winning human resources consulting firm whose tri-state clients are in Bucks County, PA, Mercer County, NJ, and beyond, offers advice to organizations that need help with their employee handbooks. The importance of having and updating an employee handbook is absolutely essential.
Although there may be no law that requires a company to have an employee handbook, there are several reasons why it would be a mistake not to. For example, most employee handbooks detail what will happen if sexual harassment or discrimination were to occur in the office. If there is no employee handbook detailing how to handle the situation, the employer may end up paying hefty legal fees as well as accepting liability for the sexual harassment or discrimination case. In addition, employee handbooks help employees understand their rights and responsibilities in positive language. Employees, then, know what is expected of them. Having a well-written, thorough and up to date employee handbook helps employees understand the rules and may be able to shield the employer if a lawsuit is filed.
Few business owners have the time or expertise to keep up with human resource policies. For example, some of the newer policies that should be in employee handbooks include policies on social media and bullying. Having a good and detailed employee manual in NJ and PA is a smart move to ensure that a business is protected.
