Inspection companies with employees and owners of multi-inspector firms should delineate their employees' rights, responsibilities, and terms of employment. They should also protect themselves from liability, and ensure that they're in compliance with state and federal employment laws and hiring practices. But most of these companies are too small to have a designated human resources (HR) manager or department to tackle these important tasks. That's why InterNACHI® developed the Employee Handbook Template.
It includes provisions for: defining the terms of employment; wages and salary; holidays and paid time off; workplace accommodations; confidentiality rules; electronic communications; handling employee complaints; guidelines for protecting intellectual property and copyrights; and more.
