Employment: A Quick Tip Which Benefits Everyone


No, this blurb is not going to provide romantic dating tips or discuss intra-office relationships. I am afraid I lured you here under false pretenses. Here is the tip:

Date your documents.

Hopefully, you never get sued. If you do, rest assured, that your ability to prove what was communicated, to whom, by whom, and when will be invaluable. This is true of documents such as employee handbooks (date every page) where a particular policy may be key to your defense. Knowing when that policy was issued may be critical.

This is also true of performance appraisals, counseling documents to employees, or simply your notes to the file. Memories fade. You will be grateful one day that your documents are dated and signed.
