An Employee Handbook is useful for communicating policies and guidance to employees. Such a document allows employers to publish policies and rules in a cost-effective, convenient way. Often, such handbooks are required by insurance companies for effective risk management. However, handbooks must be reviewed carefully for legal compliance. Unfortunately, some uninformed employers use off-the-shelf or generic handbooks given to them by payroll firms which are often incomplete or worse – they do not meet legal standards. EANJ members have access to updated policies that are reviewed on an ongoing basis for accuracy and applicability.
