NFIB Webinar Shares Guidance for Creating a Custom Employee Handbook

Date: March 19, 2024

Webinar provides must-have employee policies for small business

NFIB’s webinar Must Have Employee Policies for Small Business – Hiring, Firing, and Staying Compliant with NFIB Small Business Legal Center Executive Director Beth Milito covered hiring, employee management, leave, and other essential employment law policies to include in an Employee Handbook. The webinar highlighted NFIB’s Model Employee Handbook, available free on NFIB’s website.

Milito reviewed 10 policies that small businesses should consider including in an employee handbook:

  • Introduction
  • At-Will Statement
  • Equal Employment Opportunity Policy
  • Policy Against Unlawful Harassment
  • Wage and Hourly Policy
  • Attendance and Remote Work Policy
  • Leave and Time Off Policy
  • Discipline Policy
  • Health and Safety Policy
  • Privacy Policy

“All of these policies are not required,” said Milito. “Make your employee handbook your own and avoid just copying and pasting an existing guide, or you may incur policies your business doesn’t require.”

Watch the full webinar on-demand for an in-depth look at what to include in your handbook and hear the question-and-answer session. For questions that were unanswered or for more information about a topic discussed, feel free to email the NFIB Small Business Legal Center.
