Employee Handbook and Personnel Policies

At Miller Johnson we have assisted hundreds of our clients in formulating employee handbooks and other personnel policies. Our clients find that carefully drafted personnel policies offer a welcome measure of legal protection and can also be invaluable tools in building efficient, satisfied work forces. Here are some examples of the kinds of topics typically addressed:

  • Hiring
  • Employee retention
  • Employment at-will
  • Dispute resolution procedures including arbitration
  • Racial and sexual harassment
  • Equal opportunity
  • Employee dignity
  • Safety and health
  • Family and Medical Leave Act
  • Rules of conduct
  • Employee discipline
  • Attendance
  • Lay-off and recall
  • Job transfers and promotions
  • Paid time off (e.g., vacation, holidays, sick pay, etc.)
