Developing Your Employee Handbook: Tips and Strategies

PRESENTED DIRECT-TO-YOUR-DESKTOP by the Canadian Payroll Association and Brian Kreissl, LL.B., LL.M., CHRL, of Thomson Reuters

Many payroll practitioners play a part in developing an employee handbook for their organizations — you may be expected to take the lead on developing, revising and updating your organization’s employee handbook, or perhaps you are being consulted on relevant policies. Whatever your level of involvement, it is important to have an understanding of how employment policies are drafted, revised and enforced, and recognize some of the potential legal pitfalls that go along with creating an employee handbook.

Payroll professionals are increasingly wearing multiple hats and being asked to work on multidisciplinary project teams to develop and revise employee handbooks, or to spearhead such initiatives on their own.

This session covers the following topics:

  • The difference between employment policies, HR policy and procedure manuals and employee handbooks;
  • Best practices for developing, revising, updating, communicating and enforcing employee handbooks;
  • Some of the most important policies you should include in your handbook;
  • Legal compliance concerns relating to employment policies and employee handbooks; and
  • An overview of some of the relevant HR best practices you need to be familiar with as a payroll professional.
