Project Details

What We Need
  • Audit of existing Employee Handbook, or internal communications regarding employment policies
  • Edit or creation of a new Employee Handbook, which may include any of the following: Standards of Conduct, Work Schedules, Leave Policies, Termination Policies, Safety and Security, Anti-Discrimination policies, Compensation and Benefits policies, any Non-Disclosure Agreements or Conflict of Interest statements that may apply, and any other pertinent information
Additional Details

In need of an audit of our current employee handbook.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have an employee handbook, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have the COO's time, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,430 , allowing us to distribute the operational savings to our sixteen member colleges and universities in the form of educational support.

With a small staff, we do not have a dedicated HR professional as a resource to review the handbook and help us ensure that the organization is covered with regards to policies and staff.
