Let Vision Law® Create Your Custom Employee Handbook
Employee handbooks should maximize your rights as an employer. It should clearly state your rules and policies. Properly drafted employee handbooks reduce risk of employee lawsuits. These day’s we believe every employer should have one. Without it, the employer is exposed to unnecessary risks.
Vision Law® creates custom employee handbooks for its employer clients. “Custom” need not be unaffordable. We price our custom employee handbook on a flat rate basis normally between $1,500 – $1,800 depending on the circumstances. Compared to a six figure employee wage and hour lawsuit or other legal claim and the investment is worth it. This includes an initial consultation so we can determine which policies apply to your business and customize them.
