The usual questions come to us from small employers in White Plains, NY because they feel that their work place is certainly less formal, less rigid and often times employees with small employers don’t punch clocks.  It’s more of an informal kind of family situation, so the question that arises if whether they need to have employee handbooks or manuals or any kind of set policies. Depending on the needs of the small employers, we may advise you to have a hand book or not, very little time needs to go into hand book creating and it doesn’t have to be lengthy, my advice is to have something in writing so that the employees have a basic source of information and to whom they can go to if they have concerns.
