Do you have a current updated employee handbook in your office? Most TSO doctors were issued a TSO Employee Handbook several years ago. However, this employee handbook is no longer current or compliant with the many recent federal and state regulations.
Even though the law does not require employers to have an employee handbook, there are several reasons why it would be a mistake not to have one. Courts and agencies (such as the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) will consider the existence or non-existence of an employee handbook in determining, for example, whether the employer took reasonable steps to ensure a work environment free of unlawful harassment and discrimination. Having an employee handbook in place could shield an employer from liability.
Not only do you want a current employee handbook but you need to make sure it’s properly distributed to employees (electronic or paper copy) with the appropriate documentation supporting distribution to all employees.
Now available to all TSO doctors is an updated employee handbook from Optometric Business Solutions (OBS). All TSO doctors will also receive a 20% discount off all manuals ordered from OBS.
