Employment Handbooks

As a business owner, giving your employees a handbook is very important.

  • The handbook will give you the peace of mind knowing that you are complying with Arizona and Federal employment laws.
  • You can set the tone and culture of your business through the handbook so that you maximize the opportunity to have a happy, productive workforce.
  • Having a handbook adds a level of professionalism to the business that attracts and retains employees.
  • The handbook sets clear expectations, rights, and responsibilities thus promoting the goal of having a harmonious workforce.

Christopher R. Houk tailors employee handbooks for businesses by meeting with the business owners to determine the needs and culture of the business. Training for management and employees is also available to implement the standards set forth in the handbook.

  • Wages
    • Overtime
    • Leave
  • Workplace Safety

Depending on the subjects the employer would like to be covered, the cost of the handbook ranges from $5,000 to $10,000. Training to implement the handbook ranges from $1,000 to $5,000.
