What can a great employee handbook do? Get your new hires up to speed faster. Set clear expectations. Eliminate the stress of ad hoc, arbitrary decision-making. And, by detailing your compliance with federal and state regulations, even defend your practice against claims of discrimination or unfair treatment. Now, with the AAHA Guide to Creating an Employee Handbook, you can easily tailor a handbook to your unique practice.
This comprehensive handbook comes with a companion website where you can customize your own version. (Conveniently, the entire file is in Microsoft Word.)  Multiple sample policies are provided for topics such as:
  • Employee hours
  • Maternity leave
  • Wages and salaries
  • Employee benefits
  • Termination and resignation
  • Antiharassment
  • Much more

New to this edition:

  • Applicable changes in federal law
  • Updated human resources ideas and language
  • More information on practices’ vision, mission, and core values
  • Additional sections on topics such as social networking, domestic violence leave, drug testing, dress code, termination protocols and more

This publication is in compliance with federal employment laws in effect as of 2009. We recommend that you have your employee handbook reviewed by a local attorney familiar with your state’s labor laws before distributing it to your employees.
