South Carolina Cover Pages

It is the public policy of South Carolina (SC) that a handbook, personnel manual, policy, procedure, or other document issued by an employer shall not create an express or implied contract of employment if it is conspicuously disclaimed. A disclaimer in a handbook or personnel manual must be in underlined capital letters on the first page of the document and signed by the employee.

In the conversion to BILD 2.0, the SC-mandated acknowledgement may have failed to transfer to your SC handbook. We have corrected this oversight and ask that you republish your handbook and ask employees to sign the cover pages. Employees should sign and keep the first cover sheet and the second should remain with the printed handbook.
