Have you ever had a day that starts with an unrelenting barrage of questions? You walk into the office and there’s a voicemail from the Unemployment office asking for proof that the employee you let go understood the policy they broke. An employee comes into your office asking how vacation time is accumulated. A manager texts you to ask about the attendance policy and what he should do with the employee who consistently is calling in sick at the last minute. And an employee’s spouse calls to find out more about the benefit plan.
Sounds like a typical morning, right? As a small business owner, you know all too well that your time can often be overwhelmed by tasks that take away from your focus on your customers. Whether you’re dealing with constant questions from your employees or you’re adjusting schedules due to unexpected absences, you feel distracted from your other top priorities. At CourtSide® Consulting, we understand how things can come up unexpectedly and we’re here to proactively correct those problems before they develop. By leveraging custom employee handbooks, and the 12-months of HR support that is included with those handbooks, your business will be fully prepared for anything.

Why You Need An Employee Handbook
Did you know that roughly 1 in 5 small businesses will face employee litigation in their lifespan? It’s true, and those civil litigation suites can cost upwards of $125,000 to defend. Of those civil cases that go to trial, approximately 25% of them will result in a ruling of upwards of a half-million dollars. Employee lawsuits can come up unexpectedly for many disputes, such as:
- Wage and salary violations
- Workplace harassment or hostile work environments
- Wrongful terminations
- Employee injuries due to employer negligence
- Violations of EEOC federal workplace discrimination laws
Without the right HR support in place, your small business could be at risk of losing tens of thousands of dollars. You can mitigate those kinds of risks by leveraging a custom Employee Handbook to protect your business.
An employee handbook is the perfect HR solution for unique small businesses. A handbook helps your employees clearly understand what is expected of them and it sets the tone for your organization. Plus, it helps save your organization time by answering questions that are frequently asked so your employees can go to the handbook for the answers.
Your handbook provides the tools and resources your growing business needs to stay consistent in managing your employees, to ensure equitable policy enforcement, and to save time and money.
Your Custom HR Solution: Employee Handbooks
At CourtSide® Consulting, we can help you unlock the potential of your business by developing custom employee handbooks that are specialized to your business needs. We make the process easy by offering two development options: (1) you can use our Express Handbook Wizard or (2) work directly with one of our HR professionals. Either way, we will ask you a series of questions about your business to understand your unique needs, common frustrations, and legal gaps. We’ll then create a straight-forward employee handbook that’s customized to your company. And we’ll get those handbooks into your hands within a week.
With your new custom HR handbook, all of your policies will be in a single place, and your employees will know exactly what’s expected of them and what they need to do in certain situations. You won’t have to micromanage your workforce anymore and you’ll have more free time to concentrate on your customers, your marketing efforts, your responsibilities, and more, all thanks to our trusty handbook!
"My husband and I have many skills, but HR is definitely not one of them. After two years of struggling with employees and trying to meet HR regulations we realized we were an HR disaster waiting to happen. Fortunately, we met Courtney Berg. She quickly assessed our needs (which were many) and provided us with: an employee handbook, job descriptions and performance evaluations tools, hiring and firing forms and protocol, staff training, motivation and mediation tools, a severance agreement, etc. Most importantly she has compassionately stepped in when needed and assisted and counseled us or our employees whenever we have faced a challenging HR situation. Courtney has proven over and over to be an invaluable asset to our practice. We have many worries and issues trying to run a small business/cutting edge medical practice, but HR is no longer one of them. Thank you Courtney!"
