The village of Elburn will pay a consultant $6,000 to create an updated employee handbook.
The Village Board decided on Monday to hire Aurora-based consulting firm Sikich to create the handbook, which will incorporate new workplace legislation. After creating the new handbook, Sikich will train village department supervisors about how to use it properly and know how to proceed when an employee has a workplace concern.
Employee compensation, compensation time, sexual harassment and drug testing are among issues that will be addressed in the new handbook.
