software package from Standard Legal to create a fully-customized Employee Handbook and give your business the comprehensive human resources protections it needs.
Have an Employee Manual Question?
EMPLOYEE MANUAL & HUMAN RESOURCES LEGAL FORMS SOFTWARE
It is critical in today's "litigation and lawsuit happy" society to protect the substantial investment of
and money that any owner puts into a business. If you have even a small handful of employees, an Employee Manual is one of the best protections
you can create to prevent overzealous litigation, be it from a current employee or a previously fired worker.
The Employee Handbook software from Standard Legal sets forth the rules, regulations and guidelines that most employers should publish and
distribute to their employees. These rules effectively cover the most common situations and scenarios that affect the everyday workplace -- it is
these types of published rules and guidelines that will help you protect yourself and your business from unwarranted litigation.
The fully-developed handbook template contained within the employee manual kit, together with its step-by-step instructions for customizing and
completing it, will allow a business owner or manager to prepare a thorough and concise employee manual. Because the program is complete
and simple to use, in most cases the business owner can produce this document without the expense of an attorney. The manual should take
most users less than 30 minutes to complete and customize, and is geared for small to medium sized businesses.
The Standard Legal Employee Manual software provides a professionally
designed handbook laid out in "book format", complete with headers,
chapter titles, page numbers, etc. There are no graphics contained
within the content, so you can easily customize the look of the manual
to your tastes, even adding your own company logo prior to printing.
Here's an example of the thought and planning put into this do-it-yourself legal software package.
The employee manual does NOT contain state-specific language or a
repurposed listing of state laws, codes or regulations. A well-written
employee handbook should NEVER contain such off-topic material. Adding
state-specific language into an employee handbook runs counter to the
two primary reasons for creating such a manual: protecting the owner(s)
of the business and the business itself from litigation; and providing
the most fundamental and necessary employee directives to all workers.
If employees want to research state laws and workplace regulations,
they can do so easily at published state government sources.
