CREATE YOUR CO-OP'S EMPLOYEE/ MEMBER HANDBOOK!
This tool is not a completed handbook for your cooperative. Rather it is a framework for you to use in creating a handbook for the members of your cooperative’s staff who work in California. It does not contain every potential policy your cooperative may need or want to include for optimal staff management and retention. Rather, it includes policies that help to manage common workplace issues and essential policies to comply with federal and California state laws. This tool also includes some suggested policy language to comply with some of the city ordinances related to employment that apply to personnel who work in San Francisco and Oakland. There may be other city ordinances that apply to employees who work in these cities and other cities. City ordinances should be checked regularly for laws applicable to personnel working within that city’s jurisdiction.
