Why You Should Have a California Employee Handbook

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that California business owners can protect their company from liability and damages resulting from employee lawsuits by providing clear written workplace policies that cover the rights and responsibilities of their employees.

Studies show that when employees are given clear written policies, expectations, and guidelines to follow, their odds of continuing with their employer rise significantly. These same policies reduce the chance of the employee suing their employer.

California Employment Lawsuits Can Be Devastating

The past decade has seen a big increase in the number of lawsuits based on discrimination, sexual harassment, improper termination and hiring, and poorly drafted employee handbooks.

Employee lawsuits are a major burden to California employers. California has seen a big increase in the number of lawsuits based on discrimination, improper termination, hiring, and poorly drafted employee handbooks. Over 50% of business owners have been sued by an employee.

More than 50% of California business owners have been sued at least once by an employee or former employee. Damages awarded against them in employment lawsuits range from $300,000 to over a million dollars. Just the cost of defending against a lawsuit could range from $75,000 to $300,000.
