Employee Handbook and Policy Development and Revision

ZH has extensive experience drafting, reviewing and revising employee handbooks and policy manuals, as well as individual policies.  ZH drafts written policies and manuals to meet each employer’s specific needs. Written employee policies and management procedures are a critical component of an effective personnel management program. They also form the foundation of an employer's legal defense by documenting policies and procedures for addressing employment problems. ZH creates policies tailored to each employer's specific business culture, which support the overall satisfaction and effectiveness of the workforce as well as provide essential and legally current guidelines for the resolution of employee problems. Professionally written policies can minimize an organization's liability, while poorly crafted materials may be interpreted as contractual agreements or a suggestion of discriminatory practices and are a potential source of liability for the employer.
