Ensuring Employees Read Your Electronic Handbook

Our firm has our Employee Handbook posted online. What can we use as a receipt for an employee viewing the book?

You have several options. Check with your IT person to see if they can provide a report that shows when the handbook is accessed and by who. That report can provide some coverage for you. Ideally, you should incorporate a button on the last page that has the reader click to signify they read the book, agree to the terms, etc. Whatever online method of tracking you pursue be sure to print out the report and place it in the employee’s file.
