Employee Manual – What Your Employees Need to Know
A well-written employee manual is imperative to minimize internal problems and maximize your school’s success from the inside out.
An employee manual is an important communication tool between you and your employees. Because we live in a litigious society, it is imperative to have one in place.
Defending a discrimination or other employment lawsuit could easily cost you tens of thousands of dollars or more. An employee manual greatly reduces the risk of a lawsuit when serious problems arise between employer and employee.
A well-written handbook sets forth your expectations for your employees, and describes what they can expect from your martial arts school. It also describes your legal obligations as an employer, and your employees' rights.
This comprehensive employee manual covers important provisions such as:
· Wage and hour policies
· Employee conduct and expression policies
· Sick leave
· Several other key provisions
The goal is to clarify expectations, rules and benefits for everyone in an effort to minimize internal problems and maximize everyone’s success from the inside out.
Remember…an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
