Employment Handbooks & Documentation

The key to clear employer/employee relationships is the existence of good documentation.  At the inception of any employment relationship, formal offer letters or employment contracts, if appropriate, will ensure that the parties start with a clear understanding of the terms of the employment relationship. A company handbook is another effective way to ensure that all employees understand what is expected of them and the benefits to which they are entitled.  After the employment relationship has begun, timely and thorough documentation of employee performance or conduct issues is vital to justify decisions related to promotion, discipline or discharge.   Good documentation effectively bolsters employers' legitimate decision making and is crucial when addressing employment claims by current or former employees.    The attorneys at Harrison Law Group work closely with clients to develop effective employment related documentation and also provide ongoing advice to clients to maximize the effectiveness of company documentation.
