Generally as a employer, you should limit your liability before taking on any new employees
Generally as a employer, you should limit your liability before taking on any new employees.
The three “must haves” are:
- an employee handbook which is given out to all new employees. The handbook should address everything from the company’s sexual harassment policy to the office dress code. You’ll have them read the handbook and sign an acknowledgment form. This handbook should also cover all of the employee’s “rights.” Again, have them read it and acknowledge that they’ve received and read the handbook.
- to have each employee complete an application. Having this document is crucial for you to have as an employer!
- an employee agreement. This can be as simple as one page or as elaborate as it needs to be. But you should have one.
