I thought about it but have you ever looked at a manual giving to you by a employer?

Down the road when I have a dozen or so employees ill do it. It will help lower workers comp and fight unemployment cases.

Sounds like a good idea on paper as an employer but I doubt if many of the employees would read it.

There are two here in the misc. lawn care business forms section.

Lawn care employee manual.

and

Lawn care employee manual 2.

Download them both and see which one works better or mix and match them. The benefit of starting to use one early is that you can add to it and customize it as you go and you will have a much easier time instituting it earlier than later when employees might already create bad habits that will be tough to correct.
