Time Off Policies in Your Handbook

The most popular pages in any handbook are those that tell the employee about their sick, personal and vacation time. The problem we see is that these sections are confusing and all too often subject to some level of interpretation. The best time off policy is one that is stated as clearly as possible, thereafter complimented by a couple of calculation examples. Showing your employee in writing how much time off they will have earned in 6 months and a year is the best practice.
