Make sure that you discuss with your lawyer the need for a company handbook. If you are small, he or she may be able to give you something that is basic, but at least it is a guide for your business to follow. It ensures that everyone understands the benefits, expectations, and general direction of the business. At the very least, it lays down a framework for everyone to follow and makes it easier to see if someone deviates from the path. In general, although it creates bureaucracy, the more things in writing there are creates tangible systems of measure.
