Episode 16: Lend Me a Handbook

Episode 16 of the Quit Getting Screwed podcast features another experienced construction attorney from Karalynn’s firm. Kelly is especially well-versed in employment law in the construction industry, and in this episode, she joins Karalynn to discuss the ever-necessary benefit of having an Employee Handbook. From paper trail purposes and legal protection, to establishing a universal code of conduct and having a written guarantee that your employees will meet your standards to the best of their abilities, there are many reasons why having a handbook is in the best interest of your company.

Not only does having a handbook give you more credibility and more control in your company; having an employee handbook and enforcing it is massively essential in legally protecting you and your construction business. Your handbook can protect you from issues with behavior, misconduct, employee and jobsite safety, and more. Because circumstance, personal feeling, and other such elements have a hand in employment law, and in many instances those emotional elements are brought before a jury, it is easy for a court of law to rule against you when it comes down to company versus individual.
