A Poorly Constructed Employee Handbook Is Worse Than None At All

A poorly written employee handbook can actually be worse than having no handbook at all; therefore, employers need to be very careful of legal aspects when drafting one. "That becomes the most dangerous issue - a handbook that is not properly drafted," says Elizabeth Drew, an attorney at the Milwaukee-based law office of Reinhart, Boerner, Van Deuren, Norris & Rieselbach, S.C. Drew specializes in labor and employment laws and explained that if someone who doesn't have a legal background drafts a handbook, it could become a recipe for disaster.
