Human Resources Managers Manual

The purpose of a Managers Manual is to document the principles and policies governing your company Human Resources practices. All managers should use the manual to simplify the "people management" part of your job by summarizing State and Federal personnel administration laws, regulations, and procedures.

The Principles and Policies included provide:

-A foundation for a system of internal controls.
-Guidance in current Human Resources areas not controlled by laws or regulations.
-Criteria for decisions on appropriate Human Resources treatment.
-Managers with direction and guidance in connection with processes and procedures that should be uniform throughout The Company.
-When consistently applied throughout The Company, these principles and policies assure that the various Internal controls provide a system of checks and balances intended to identify irregularities, prevent waste, fraud and abuse from occurring, and assist all personnel in treating all others in a fair and consistent manner.
