Does Your Employee Handbook Need “Technical” Updates?

It is important to remember that employee handbooks should be updated as technology improves and company procedures evolve.  You should make sure that your employee handbook is updated to reflect modern technology and that it appropriately addresses employees’ use of the same.  One issue is the use of cell phones.  Do your policies clearly address how personal and business cell phones may be used at work?  Unclear policies are resulting in employer employee litigation.  You need to have a clear policy about cell phone use, including texting, at work.  Your policy needs to be one that can be enforced consistently.  Clarify expectations.  Communicate your policy.  Enforce your policy reasonably and consistently.
