Do Not Put Your Employee Manual on Auto-Pilot
Posted on: November 22nd, 2012

Do you have an employee manual that is handed to all new employees?  Chances are you do, but you may not realize the importance of having a sound employee manual.

Even with the downturn in the economy, claims filed with the Texas Workforce Commission and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission remain at historically high levels.  Among the first defenses for any employer facing a Texas Workforce Commission or Equal Employment Opportunity Commission claim are the policies set forth in the employer’s employee manual.   However, having a sound employee manual is not enough.  Employers must also ensure that the policies and procedures set forth in the employee manual are known by the employees and that the policies are enforced.  Therefore, training both employees and management related to the employee manual is vital.

The attorneys at McCleskey can assist you in drafting a sound and thorough employee manual, training your employees on the policies set forth in the employee manual, and guiding you through implementation of the manual and its policies.  Additionally, our attorneys are well qualified to assist you in handling claims filed with the Texas Workforce Commission or Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
