Anatomy of an Effective Employee Handbook

Even though an employee handbook is not required by state or federal employment law, your employee handbook could be one of your business' most valued documents. A well-crafted handbook can provide a clear presentation of your organization's benefits, policies and standards which can have a positive impact on employee morale, loyalty and productivity.


When employees can access and understand policies, they are more likely to perceive objectivity and clear process versus arbitrary or discriminatory management decisions. Similarly, supervisors are more likely to administer policies in a consistent manner when there is one go-to reference for all. When designing a handbook, there are some important items to keep in mind.

Individual Veteran Categories No Longer Required on Post-Offer Self-ID Form

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has issued new guidance regarding the post-offer invitation to self-identify protected veteran status. In its FAQs, the OFCCP now explains that "since the new VETS-4212 report no longer requires contractors to provide this information by the individual protected veteran categories, contractors are not required to invite self-identification by category in order to comply with VEVRAA's post-offer invitation requirement. Rather, contractors need only invite those offered a job to indicate whether they are protected veterans under any of the VEVRAA categories."

She also noted that the investment in human resources – including recruiting, payroll, employment taxes, benefits, employee relations, and training and development– is typically the single largest expense for a business.  In two short sentences, she effectively conveyed the significance of HR’s role in business today.
