Not complying with current law can be expensive in today's legal climate. One of your New Year's resolutions should be to review your employee handbook and employment-related policies to make sure they are up to date. When doing so, remember to draft your handbooks so that your employees actually read them and follow your policies.
With a tightening economy, those employers fortunate enough to be hiring can't afford to make bad hiring decisions. Among other problems, bad hires can result in high turnover, low production, workplace disruption, abuse of benefits and creation of legal risks.
