When Was the Last Time You Updated Your Employee Handbook?
It is recommended you do so annually; however, best practices suggest you perform a review and edit every six months.
Why? Laws change. Employment trends change. Procedures change. And, life changes.
For example, what are your remote work policies? What are your work from home expectations? How are your employees currently required to keep their time? What are your obligations around the Family and Medical Leave Act?
Your employee handbook is one of the first places your workers turn to for help, procedures and expectations.
Your employee handbook is also one of the most important documents when it comes to protecting your organization against employee lawsuits and claims.

"Employers who communicate with their workforce and act in ways that demonstrate genuine concern for employee health and safety will probably see reduced risk of worker illness or further outbreak and increased productivity as the workplace phases back to required output."
