Packaging Your Policies
Make sure your handbook includes clearly written and prominently displayed disclaimers that state:
- The at-will nature of the employees’ work relationship with the company.
- The handbook does not create a contract, expressed or implied.
- The handbook should not be considered all-inclusive, but rather a set of guidelines.
- The handbook supersedes any previous handbook or written policies.
- The handbook can only be changed in writing, by the president of the company or another designated person.
- The handbook can be changed by the organization unilaterally at any time.
- Regardless of the date of hire, employees are subject to any amendments, deletions and changes in the handbook.
