PREFERRED LEGAL COMPLIANCE OPTION
1. COMPANY POLICY HANDBOOK
Under the Preferred Legal Compliance Option, the employer receives a current employment handbook that is compliant with California and Federal law. The first section of the employment handbook contains a comprehensive list of required and recommended employment policies and practices that comply with both California and Federal law. The second section of the Company Policy Handbook contains employee benefits and leaves of absence. The final section of the handbook contains policies pertaining to standards of conduct, which include but are not limited to Confidential Information; Customer Relations, Prohibited Conduct; Personal Standards; Safety, Drug and Alcohol and Corrective Action.
2. ADVANCED-LEVEL CUSTOMIZATION
Advanced-level customization is required if you wish to revise your existing handbook. Advanced-level handbook customization includes an allotment of up to four hours of one-on-one attorney time. During the initial consultation, you will have an opportunity to convey specific areas of concern and describe employment and labor practices that are specific to your business. During the second consultation, an attorney will provide clarification regarding the handbook revisions, notate additional requested changes, and answer any questions regarding the handbook policies. Following the second consultation, an attorney will provide follow-up or post-revision research and policy changes on related employment documents. Situations may arise in which four hours of work is insufficient to cover additional work required, such as the drafting of industry-specific policies, highly technical agreements, and other specific requests. You will be informed when requested legal work falls outside the scope of the Preferred Legal Compliance flat fee and have the option to defer such work or proceed subject to our attorney hourly billing rate.
3. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
Under the Standard Legal Compliance Option, an Arbitration Agreement is also provided as an addendum to the Company Policy Handbook.
4. STANDARD EMPLOYMENT DOCUMENTS
The following employment documents are provided under the Preferred Legal Compliance Option:
- Employee Application Form
- Employee Offer Letter and Agreement
- Performance Review Form
- Disciplinary Action Form
- Termination Form
