Handbooks provide crucial policy guidance for both employees and employers, from outlining benefits and procedures to defining conduct and discipline. Your handbook is also your best defense against costly litigation. The language you use, and the provisions you include, can make or break a lawsuit, and can stop disputes before they arise. We can create, review, or assist in the preparation of new or existing policies and handbooks.
Let Cardinal take care of your handbook for your business and you’ll:
- Avoid common handbook policies that are actually illegal
Access to newly updated personnel policies
Learn how to communicate the handbook's contents, as well as any changes that you may make from time to time
Avoid other practical problems that arise when you need to revise the handbook

Get a detailed listing of critical policies such as harassment, discrimination, attendance, leave, holidays, wage payment schedule, appearance codes, rules on Internet use, cell phone usage, smoking, etc.
Receive a clear explanation of your organization's disciplinary procedures
Be provided with information that should NOT be included in a handbook, such as detailed information important only to certain groups
