Updated for 2018 – CAP’s Free Customizable Human Resources Manual

CAP’s Human Resources Department offers a free customizable human resources manual designed to assist you in providing appropriate office policies for the management of your employees throughout the employment cycle. This comprehensive, customizable manual is designed exclusively for medical practices and has been updated with California employment laws as of May 2018.

If you downloaded the previous version of this manual in 2017, you will need to update the policy sections below in order to remain compliant with current laws. The policies listed below need to either be updated or the Editor’s Notes for these policies need to be read to determine if the policy should be updated for your practice. When you see a reference to Editor’s Note Only, please read the Editor’s Note to be aware of the policy in general.
