The Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., employee handbook lawyers at Thatcher Law Firm will ensure that your handbook covers state and federal employment laws as well as company policies and the company’s grievance or complaint procedures. If a business can prove that it has well-documented policies in place, its position will be stronger should an employee file a complaint or suit.

Company privacy policies and employee use of computers, the internet and email are also critical topics. It is more important than ever for your employee handbook to address policies regarding social media such as blogs and social networking websites.
