More than ever, your employee handbook is your company’s major safeguard from costly lawsuits, such as wrongful termination, sexual harassment, and unlawful employment practice suits.

Of course, you have a handbook. That’s great, but when was the last time you had it reviewed or updated? Is it current? Is legal? Will it be your best defense if an employee practices claim is filed against your company? The bottom line is if your handbook isn’t up to date, it could cost you serious money.

It is good employment practice to have your handbook reviewed yearly to stay in compliance with rapidly changing employment laws. As a Stern Insurance Group, Inc. policyholder, you can have your handbook reviewed annually absolutely free through BizAssure Consulting. Our Littler-Mendelson (one of the nation’s premiere labor law firms) approved checklist of handbook compliance “must haves” assures your handbook is complete and compliant.

Following a scheduled review, we will send you a completed grade sheet of your handbook, with recommendations. Should your handbook need to be revised or rewritten, call us to receive a special
