Errors to Advoid in Creating Employee Handbooks
The following are examples of employee handbook mistakes that may give an employee sound footing to claim wrongful discharge based on a breach of an implied contract:
1. Language implying that if an employee makes it through the introductory work period (often called the probationary period) the employee is somehow less vulnerable to termination
2.The use of permanent employee anywhere in the handbook
3.The absence of a disclaimer about employment-at-will status, or a disclaimer that's so buried in the text that it isn't prominently displayed
4.A narrowly defined list of reasons for termination that implies that an employee can only be terminated for the reasons itemized on a list
5.A verbal promise from a supervisor that the employee will have a job as long as you want or similar assurances of continued employment
6.Language stating that termination can only be for cause
7.A definite list of disciplinary actions, usually described as progressive discipline that could be interpreted as requiring that all the steps, or certain of the steps, must be followed prior to termination, or that the discipline described must be applied in a certain order prior to termination.
