I was wondering if you have any help for someone putting together employee manuals.
Your question about how to put together an employee manual is very valid. Most clubs, in fact, do not see the need or have the wherewithal to create such a manual. I’ve provided for your review a sample Table of Contents outline for an employee manual. Click here to view. Also, I would like to refer you the National Fitness Business Alliance web site that is owned by Thomas Plummer. He sells a Standard Employee Policy & Procedure Manual. His web site is: http://www.jointhenfba.com/club/scripts/section/section.asp?NS=MEM
Here is a description of his manual: "You must use employee manuals with your team. You cannot defend yourself against legal action if you haven’t given each member of your staff a clearly written employee manual that covers everything from discipline procedures to the dress code. This manual is where to start if you haven’t yet introduced an employee manual system in your club. This kit comes with hard copy and a disc you can use to get copies to each and every member of your team. As always, it is recommended you work with your local attorney to develop the final policies you will need in your club."
