What Employee Handbooks Should Cover in Florida
Generally speaking, employee handbooks contain a company or organization’s workplace standards. They also outline important information such as the compensation that an employee is owed, compensation that must abide by wage and hour laws, as well as with regulations on workers’ compensation.
In order to avoid ambiguity and legal loopholes, these handbooks should include a wide range of information such as:
- Anti-discrimination policies
- Codes of conduct
- Wages and workers’ compensation
- Details of retirement plans, healthcare options, etc.
- Non-disclosure agreements (NDA)
- Conflict of interest statements

Employee handbooks are also used to regulate disputes in the workplace, and can address issues such as sexual harassment and other problems. This could include details such as the company policy on reporting disputes, as well as how workplace authorities should respond to incidents.
If you are involved in a legal disagreement, or if your rights have been violated, you and your lawyer may be able to use your employee handbook to demonstrate liability and resolve the issue. In fact, employers can be held liable for certain disputes if they do not inform employees of their rights in the employee handbook.
