Colorado has state-mandated special requirements, that exceed federal requirements, for short-term disability leave for all employers with one or more employees. The employee handbook offered here includes a policy defining adherence to the state requirements for short-term disability leave to be used as company policy by in-state employers. In keeping with state requirements, all other policies adhere to federal labor laws as outlined in the handbook template provided here*. Colorado small businesses will find, included in this template, policies for cell phones and texting, breaks, conduct, employee use of company vehicles, employee dress code, computer use, compensation, and nearly 100 other optional topics.
Visa, MasterCard, Amex, Discover Card, eChecks and PayPal accepted.
Labor laws require that all businesses have written policy and enforce policies uniformly with all employees. An employee handbook is simply the best, most cost-effective method for complying with this requirement.
