The employee handbook is a critical management tool.

The employee handbook is the most important communication link between you and your employees. This invaluable management tool helps you effectively communicate with employees and showcase the benefits and services you provide for them. A handbook also helps eliminate inconsistency in workforce management, a problem which often results in discrimination liability and union vulnerability. A small investment in a legally-compliant, employee-friendly handbook can save you thousands of dollars down the road in legal trouble and problems with employee relations.

Creating handbooks and keeping them updated is grueling and time-intensive.

Creating customized, legally sound and easy-to-understand employee handbooks can be a challenge. In addition, handbooks must be regularly updated to keep them legally compliant.

{ERS}co has a simple handbook solution.

Employer Risk Solutions Company (ERSco) and ERC offer an easy, convenient employee handbook solution. Our service provides customized, easily accessible handbooks that can be perpetually and automatically updated to keep pace with changes in federal and Ohio state laws. Assuming you renew your handbook membership, we'll take care of the work for you from here on out.

The last handbook you’ll ever need.

Please complete and submit the following questionnaire. Your answers will determine how the handbook will be customized to meet the individual needs of your company. As you are completing this survey, please keep in mind that, assuming you renew your handbook membership, this is the last questionnaire you will ever have to complete and the last handbook you will ever have to update!

Here's how it works...

  • Completing the Questionnaire
    We begin by asking you to complete a comprehensive questionnaire about your specific workplace policies and practices. This is how we gather all the details needed to customize the handbook to reflect your organization.
  • Drafting the New Handbook
    Once we receive your completed questionnaire, ERSco works with attorneys at the law firm of Fisher & Phillips, LLP to draft your new handbook.   You receive the handbook draft within 3 - 4 weeks of submitting your completed questionnaire.
  • Reviews, Edits and Final Draft
    You now have an opportunity to review the handbook draft and request any edits you want.
  • Distributing the New Handbook to Your Workforce
    Since the handbook has been written by employment attorneys, there is no need for another review by legal counsel. At this point it is ready to be distributed to your workforce electronically or in print.
  • Keeping it Updated
    ERSco will maintain responsibility for keeping your handbook updated. Because your handbook is housed on our server, we are able to automatically download policy updates whenever changes in legislation demand it. Your handbook remains current and you don't have to do a thing, other than notify your workforce of policy changes!
