The New Year is a great time to make sure your personnel policy manual is up-to-date

An employee handbook/personnel policy manual is an important communication tool between you and your employees. A well-written handbook sets forth your expectations for your employees, and describes what they can expect from your entity. It also should describe your legal obligations as an employer and your employees’ rights.

Review your personnel policy annually

One of the most important aspects of any handbook is that it is kept current. Laws do change, and your employee handbook needs to be updated and kept current on a regular basis.  VML Insurance Programs maintains a Sample Personnel Manual on our website that may be customized to meet your entity’s needs. We also offer the service of reviewing your entity handbook/manual for areas of liability.
