Description

Understanding what an employee handbook must have in it is tough enough. However, if you represent a multi-state employer doing business in more than one state, it is even more complicated. There are a multitude of laws that vary state by state that an organization needs to ensure compliance with. Failure to do so can put an organization at legal peril.

One of the causes for concern when drafting a multi-state handbook is that employers must comply with both federal and state laws concerning workplace employment practices such as wage and hour laws, no-smoking laws, FMLA, harassment, minimum wage, overtime, etc. Therefore what may be legal in one state and create legal havoc for you in another state.
