3 Reasons to get a Custom Employee Handbook

“Very thorough and took the time to understand my business.”

Roger B

1. A Complete and Comprehensive Service

We design employee handbooks that meet each client’s needs and wants. We do a thorough review of your current policies and we take the time to understand what you need to get into writing. When we’re done, your new policy manual will be ready-to-use.

Compared to trying to create a handbook by using a template or a software program, you will:

  • Save 120 labor hours (or more) on research, formatting, and editing
  • Save hundreds of dollars in labor costs
  • Save the headaches of trying to understand what applies to your business and what doesn’t

2. Compliant with Federal, State, and Local Laws

We design employee handbooks that comply with the laws for your stateindustry, and employee count. All of the core employee policies that we use have been reviewed by one of the country’s leading labor law firms.

Your employee policies will be clear, concise, and complete:

  • Define employee benefits such as PTO, vacation, sick leave, and  holidays
  • Establish employee behavior standards, including dress code, customer interactions, and use of company property
  • Clarify mandatory policies such as at-will employment, anti-discrimination, and overtime rules

3. Customized to your Specific Business

We design employee handbooks that reflect each client’s unique culture and priorities. We customize policies to match your established rules and benefits. We also add policies to reflect your specific niche in the construction industry. Are you doing new construction and/or remodeling? Are you a design & build firm or you a company focused on retrofitting and upgrades? Each niche has its own unique approach to employee policies and work environment. We will make sure your Construction Employee Handbook reflects your business needs and wants.

Your custom employee handbook will capture specifics like:

  • Phone, text, and social media rules
  • Vehicle safety, business expense reimbursements, and heat exposure
  • Jobsite security and client privacy

Texas Harassment Law Change

We at New Wind hope all is well with you and your company. Below is our Labor Law update for your particular state.

Upcoming New Law: Texas SB 45 (HB 48)
What is it about? Discrimination and Harassment
Effective Date: September 1, 2021

Summary of the law: The national law firm of Littler summarizes the new law as this: “Provides that it is unlawful employment practice if an employer knew about prohibited harassment and did not act immediately.”

How could it affect you? Be sure to take any claims of harassment seriously and be quick to investigate any reported or suspected harassment. If you do not already have your company policies in writing, you might consider getting an Employee Handbook. At New Wind, we can craft a customized Texas Employee Handbook specifically for your organization.

Dealing with Customers who Harass Your Employees

Almost all managers and business owners understand that the law protects their employees from harassment by fellow employees or by any boss. Many companies even have written policies in place, detailing the seriousness of such harassment and how it will be investigated. Whether it’s sexual, racial, or any other inappropriate behavior, most managers know it cannot be tolerated. But what do you do when the harasser isn’t an employee? What if the harassment comes from a vendor or a customer?

Don’t just ignore misdeeds of outsiders. With vendors, you can complain to their supervisors to demand that the vendor either be disciplined or replaced. Dealing with errant customers can be more difficult though, especially if your company has had the attitude of ‘the customer is always right.’ But you cannot just ignore misdeeds by customers, especially if they are towards your staff.

The law firm Jackson Lewis PC addressed this issue recently in an article:

The Seventh Circuit provided an illustrative hypothetical of this in Dunn v. Washington County Hospital:

Suppose a patient kept a macaw in his room, that the bird bit and scratched women but not men, and that the Hospital did nothing. The Hospital would be responsible for the decision to expose women to the working conditions affected by the macaw, even though the bird (a) was not an employee, and (b) could not be controlled by reasoning or sanctions. It would be the Hospital’s responsibility to protect its female employees by excluding the offending bird from its premises.

429 F.3d 689, 691 (7th Cir. 2005).

Still, this does not mean the law makes employers vicariously liable for customers’ actions. Rather, the Seventh Circuit held, the standard of liability applicable to coworker harassment also applies to customer-based harassment. Although this standard does not translate perfectly to situations of alleged customer harassment, it is adaptable.

Read the full article at JacksonLewis website.

In other words, you need to stand up against harassment whenever it happens at the workplace, whether the offender is an employee or an outsider. You might not have as much leverage over customers but that doesn’t mean you should allow them to get away with demeaning behavior. Might it endanger sales? Certainly, but some things are more important that a large profit.

Do you have your harassment policies in writing? If not, then consider getting at least that in place. By getting the company’s standards and expectations in writing, you are making sure all employees know that you won’t tolerate disrespect of another. It also offers guidance to all supervisors. Time to get an employee handbook designed specifically for your particular business.
