Federal and State Required Policies

Federal law and many state laws require that employers establish workplace policies on various topics. These laws require that the policies include very specific content and be kept up to date with changes in the laws. Employers should include all required policies and other relevant policies in their employee handbook.

Learn more about the workplace policies required in the states where you have employees.

The Employer's Challenge

Ensuring that an employee handbook is current and compliant presents a key challenge for many organizations. Employers must:
  • Develop a handbook that is compliant with federal and state laws in all jurisdictions where they have employees -- including work-from-home employees.
  • Monitor the law in all jurisdictions where they have employees and change their handbook as the laws change.
  • Ensure that employees acknowledge receipt of the handbook and changes to the handbook as laws change.
Clear Law’s Compliance Advisory Team, which has years of experience practicing employment law, has reviewed hundreds of handbooks adopted by small, mid-size, and large employers around the country. All too often, the handbooks have not been compliant with applicable state laws or consistent with best practice guidelines. Moreover, even when a handbook is fully compliant when adopted, it can quickly become out-of-date because employment laws continually change. To maintain legally compliant employee handbooks, employers must ask themselves the following questions:
  • Given our industry, the types of workers we employ, and the locations where we operate, have we included all appropriate policies in the employee handbook?
  • Are the policies that we included in the handbook compliant with applicable federal and state laws?
  • How can we efficiently monitor federal and applicable state laws to ensure we know when legal changes affect our handbook content?
  • Who will modify existing policies to comply with new laws and changes in the law?

Clear Law's Employee Handbook Service

Clear Law Institute’s Employee Handbook Service can give you peace of mind in knowing that your employee handbook is legally compliant and will be kept up to date with ever-changing federal and state laws. Clear Law’s Compliance Advisory Team, which has years of employment law experience, will consult with you so that your handbook is both compliant and meets your organization’s specific needs, given your industry and the states where you operate.

With Clear Law’s Employee Handbook Service, you will have a customized employee handbook that will

  • comply with federal and state laws,
  • reduce the risk of lawsuits and fines for employment law violations,
  • communicate the organization’s expectations to employees,
  • inform employees where to receive guidance when they have questions, and
  • serve as documentation in case of an employment dispute.

Clear Law’s Employee Handbook Service involves the following steps.

  1. Handbook Creation

You provide us with some basic information, such as:

  • list of states where you have employees working (including from home)
  • your number of employees
  • your industry

We will develop a customized employee handbook for your review based on the information you provide, submit a proposed draft for your review, and then consult with you to address any open issues. We provide your finalized handbook in an editable DOCX format as well as a PDF you can distribute to employees.

  1. Monitoring and Updating

We monitor federal law and the law in all 50 states. As laws change that require updates to your handbook, we notify you and provide you an updated employee handbook at no additional cost.

  1. Annual Employee Certification

We recommend that you provide your handbook to employees once a year and ask them to read the handbook and certify that they understand it. Clear Law can provide an online certification process to handle this process for you.

Content of Your Employee Handbook

Our Compliance Advisory Team will work with you to ensure your handbook includes the policies required by law and the policies recommended as consistent with best practices.

As discussed above, certain states require employers to have specific policies.  Beyond that, we will work with you to determine which other optional policies you would like to include.

Employer handbooks can include the following types of policies:
