Tips For Employers

  • Have things in writing. The more details that are included in your documentation, the more concrete information you have to prove your case.
  • No matter how small a company you are, you need an employee manual. This creates consistency with all employees, and provides documentation of your policies and practices.
  • Do not be afraid to consult with a lawyer. An attorney with a full understanding of the law can advise you of your rights as a business, and what type of action may be in your best interests and the interests of the business.
