Developing Employer Policies and Procedures

Kelly Hart’s Labor & Employment attorneys routinely assist major employers in drafting new employment policies and procedures, as well as revising existing policies. Handbook reviews are often useful in making sure an employer’s policies have remained current with the frequently changing laws, regulations and most recent court opinions facing employers. Moreover, our attorneys routinely draft, review and revise our clients' employee job descriptions to ensure they accurately describe the duties and responsibilities of the position; identify the essential and marginal functions of the job; and remain current as jobs change and evolve over time. Clear, effective communication of the duties and responsibilities of the job, as well as the employer’s legitimate expectations communicated through written policies, are often keys to successful defenses of employment litigation.
