STANDARD LEGAL COMPLIANCE OPTION
1. COMPANY HANDBOOK
Under the Standard 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. BASIC-LEVEL CUSTOMIZATION
Basic-level customization begins with a 45-minute phone consultation during which the employer is asked to relate basic business information, such as the number of employees and information about benefit policies. Certain state and federal laws apply to your businesses depending on whether you have fewer than five, fifteen, twenty-five or fifty employees. Under this package, your handbook is customized to include the state and federal laws applicable to your business based on your number of employees. Situations may arise in which 45 minutes 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 Standard 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 documents are provided under the Standard Legal Compliance Option:
- Employee Application Form
- Employee Offer Letter and Agreement
- Performance Review Form
- Disciplinary Action Form
- Termination Form
5. CONTINUING LEGAL COMPLIANCE PROGRAM
In addition to employers who purchase any one of our Basic, Standard, or Preferred Legal Compliance Options, all employers are eligible to participate in our Continuing Legal Compliance Program. At a flat monthly rate based on employer size, employers receive an allotment of up to two hours of one-on-one attorney consultation and/or research time and a comprehensive yearly handbook update incorporating all new state and federal laws. You will be informed when requested legal work falls outside the scope of the Continuing Legal Compliance Program flat fee and have the option to defer such work or proceed subject to our attorney hourly billing rate.
