  • Employee Manual

    Does anybody know where we can purchase an HR policy manual at a reasonable cost? There are a lot of them out there and we were just looking for some guidance. Thanks.

    Re: Employee Manual

    "Reasonable cost" is, of course, subjective. There are a lot of software programs available that range from $29 to $99. I'm not a fan of the software versions simply because you need to also include your own policies and practices for the handbook to be truly valuable to you and your employees. If you only want one that lists current laws, just get the cheapest thing out there but make sure it's a version for your state and not just federal laws.

    How things are worded in your employee handbook can make it very useful in keeping you out of court or, if done badly, give employees a reason to take you to court. When you're considering price, keep in mind that once you have a good handbook as a starting place you'll only need to tweak it in coming years to reflect changes in laws or your policies/practices.

      Thanks for the note I didn't really think about the state requirements thanks for brining that up a lot of the packages just include federal requirements

        I live in California and, as most people know, California is the forerunner for any new employment laws. It seems like the federal government waits to see how it works here then enacts a lesser version of it federally. Most other states don't have nearly as many employment laws but there will probably be a few that you'll need to address.

          I agree California always tends to be on the bleeding (leading) edge of a lot of things and helps push the country into thinking about new ideas!

                Okay, I'm sorry ... but ... $495 is too expensive if all you want is a manual. I offer an Employee Handbook that isn't inexpensive ($297) but I write the whole thing and hold the person's hand (i.e., consult) throughout it to offer advice on what should and shouldn't be included and they end up with a document ready to be distributed. Not trying to make a sales pitch here, just saying that I've done my research and know there are tons of software programs out there from $39 to $99 and a few higher priced ones by consultants, like mine. With the software you need to put the pieces together and it will be generic, but usable. They say you can personalize the software versions yourself but, short of just adding your name in spots, you take a risk if you change any of the language.

                What you get for the $495 is supposedly an HR guide with the handbook thrown in. However, having been in HR for nearly 20 years I can tell you that reading the text of a policy or law is very different from the practical application. If you don't have a lot of experience with HR issues, you're safer getting professional advice from time to time.

                Okay, I'm off my soap box. Sorry!

                    Time and attendance software is used to monitor how much time each particular employee works each day. It also tells you the exact amount of hours and days each employee has worked in a month. There are a lot of benefits that our company enjoyed after implementing our new time and attendance software.
