Human Resources Policy
Minnesota Employment Law
Having a comprehensive human resource policy is crucial for any business with employees. A comprehensive human resources policy can protect the employer from costly litigation, and it can promote a more productive workplace. Human resource policies are laid out in employee handbooks.
A well drafted employee handbook and human resource policy may prevent claims of discrimination, retaliation, wage and hour, and various other claims from being brought against an employer. Even if a claim alleged by an employee is not true, it may be costly to deal with a claim investigated by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Minnesota Department of Human Rights, Department of Labor or other agency.
Having defined and consistent rules, procedures, and policies is a best practice in the operation of any business because the damages awarded in employment suits can be well in excess of tens of thousands of dollars.
Any employer should invest the resources in having a knowledgeable attorney create their human resources policy and draft their employee handbook. With a properly crafted human resources policy, employee handbook, and proper training, an employer will be able minimize risks and costly litigation related to their employment practices. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of litigation.
