Customizable Employee Handbooks and Personnel Policies
Sound employment practice decisions evolve from the development and maintenance of a personnel policy structure appropriate to each individual business or corporate need. Managerial procedure manuals, employee handbooks, personnel form management, and a well thought-out process of employment-related decision-making are essential in today's complex work environment.

Depending on specific client objectives, we conduct in-depth employment practice audits, facilitate the development of procedure manuals and employee handbooks, and offer our clients the benefit of our experience in developing successful methods of enhanced human resource administration. This pro-active approach has demonstrated the ability to minimize liability arising from potential legal conflicts in the areas of state and federal wage and hour laws, employee discipline, affirmative action and equal employment opportunity law, state and federal safety and health law, employee benefit plan administration, Workers' Compensation and Unemployment Insurance law issues, and related matters.

The following is a sample list of the personnel policies that we recommend that most clients include in their employee handbooks.  These policies (drafted by Delacroix) as well as other regularly-added and updated policies are made available exclusively to Delacroix clients in our subscription library.  Need further information?  Contact us here.
