Workplace Handbook and Training Issues:

  • Expectations
  • Rights and Responsibilities
  • Mission Statement


Slurs, jokes, touching, threats, stalking based on gender, race, national origin, color, disability, sexual orientation, religion, age (40 or older), and genetic information are among the acts that may constitute an unlawful hostile work environment. Employers must keep the workplace free of harassment and retaliation.

Know Your Rights and Responsibilities

An employment handbook is a great source of the company’s expectations for employees and management.

I own my own business. Should I have an employment handbook?
There are several good reasons to have an employment handbook.
For example, Handbooks:
  • May protect your business against harassment claims by co-workers.
  • May cause your insurance rates to go down
  • Will increase the professionalism of your company
  • Give you the opportunity to set forth your company’s mission statement
  • Help prevent problems from getting out of control.
