Handbook & Policy Reviews

It is in every employer’s best interest to have a thorough and comprehensive employee handbook in place. Employee handbooks inform all employees of the employer’s policies and procedures and establish the employer’s expectations of its employees.

Not only do employee handbooks inform employees of the employer’s rules, regulations, and policies, but they also allow the employer to communicate applicable Colorado and federal law to its employees and assist the employer in following these laws, reducing its risk of litigation.

Colorado employee handbooks should address multiple topics, including:

  • Committing to its employees that the employer is an equal opportunity employer;
  • Prohibiting discrimination and harassment and informing employees of the policy to follow if any employee believes that he or she is the victim of discrimination or harassment;
  • Detailing the professional conduct expected of the employees;
  • Detailing dress code guidelines;
  • Informing employees of the pay periods and any mandatory deductions;
  • Informing the employees of its employment classifications, including exempt status, non-exempt status, and part-time, full-time, or temporary employment status;
  • Detailing leave policies, such as military leave, jury duty, maternity leave, paternity leave, and holidays;
  • Work performance expectations;
  • Disciplinary policies; and
  • Termination policies.

Having an employee handbook in place that comprehensively addresses Colorado and federal law, as well as the employer’s expectations and policies, can assist in providing a good work environment and reducing the risk of future employment litigation.
