As a business idea develops from a concept to start-up, there are a progression of steps a founder can take to help their Company’s overall success and sustainability. For example, in the initial stages of growth, the owner should make sure the Company is a properly formed entity for added protection. Then, as employees are added, the owner should become educated on what it means to be a California Employer.
While many founders of start-ups fear that an Employee Handbook can be too restrictive on their new company, it is important to note that procedures and policies are put in order to reflect the philosophy of the business, the culture, and are created to suit the specific needs of the company while reflecting your core values.
