Employee Handbook – A customized Employee Handbook allows a business owner or manager to legally protect the business by determining in advance the rules and guidelines for all employees. Using information that you provide, Standard Legal’s document preparation professionals will create a fully completed Employee Handbook/Employee Manual, and will provide that handbook in a format that you can print as needed. You select the topics or policies that are relevant to your business operations, you provide some specific information related to those topics, and Standard Legal does the rest. Working with you, Standard Legal will ensure that the publishing of your Employee Handbook is as easy as possible — and completely relevant to your company’s business.

CUSTOM DESIGN INCLUDED AT NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE!  Send us your logo, tell us the page size you prefer, choose whether your manual will have pages printed on one side or two, and we will put the custom touches into your document that make it look well-designed and truly professional!


Employment Agreement – This agreement, between your business and its employees establishes an “at-will” employment relationship, sets forth compensation for the employee, provides for non-disclosure of the employer’s business secrets, and contains a non-compete agreement. This Agreement can be used hand-in-hand with the Employee Handbook; but if you do not wish to implement the policies in the Handbook, it can be used as a stand-alone document that offers some protection from employee claims of guaranteed employment” or implied terms or conditions of employment.” Using the information that you provide, Standard Legal’s document preparation service will customize this Agreement using your company name and other pertinent information. You can use this Agreement as needed and as any particular situation arises.

Employee Arbitration Agreement Form – Avoid costly litigation at the hands of disgruntled current or former employees. This binding agreement requires any and all claims that could be directed against your company from current or former employees be sent to binding arbitration rather than costly and time consuming litigation. Using the information that you provide, Standard Legal’s document preparation service will customize this Agreement using your company name and other pertinent information. You can use this Agreement as needed and as any particular situations arise.

Consultant Agreement – If your business needs the expertise of an industry insider but does not want the burden and expense of putting that person on payroll full-time, consider retaining that person as a consultant. This document creates an independent contractor relationship between your company and the consultant with the expertise you desire to tap. Using the information that you provide, Standard Legal’s document preparation service will customize this Agreement using your company name and other pertinent information. You can use this Agreement as needed and as any particular situations arise.

Sales Representative Agreement – If your business is in need of a sales force but does not desire (nor can it afford) the hassle, burden and cost of full-time employee representatives, this agreement may be perfect for your business. This agreement establishes an independent contractor-type relationship with the sales representatives who offer your company’s products to the market. The representative is paid a negotiated commission amount only when the sales representative sells your products and you have received full payment from the customer on that sale. Using the information that you provide, Standard Legal’s document preparation service will customize this Agreement using your company name and other pertinent information. You can use this Agreement as needed and as any particular situations arise.

Employment Application – Use this document to obtain concise and accurate information from potential employees. (Note that all employee applications must be retained for a specific period of time by the company; see the Record Retention Guide that is provided with this software). Using the information that you provide, Standard Legal’s document preparation service will customize this Agreement using your company name and other pertinent information. You can use this Agreement as needed and as any particular situations arise.

Employee Review Form – Allows you to prepare a relevant and company/job specific job review form so that your management personnel can conduct thoughtful, insightful reviews of your employees’ work performances. Using the information that you provide, Standard Legal’s document preparation service will customize this Agreement using your company name and other pertinent information. You can use this Agreement as needed and as any particular situations arise.

Criminal Background Check and Credit Report Check Authorization Forms – Allows the business owner to gain signed authorization from a potential employee to run a credit and criminal background check on that person.

BONUS: RECORD RETENTION GUIDE – State and Federal laws, as well as good business practices, dictate that certain records generated by a business be retained for a specific period of time. This Guide provides the both the legal requirements and suggests appropriate periods of time for which business records should be kept.

BONUS: FEDERALLY REQUIRED EMPLOYEE NOTICES POSTERS – The Federal Government requires that employers post in a conspicuous place at their business certain posters describing information on minimum wage, OSHA matters, EEOC, etc. This software contains such posting requirements as provided verbatim from the U.S. Department of Labor. Note that there may be specific state law posting requirements in addition to those contained in our software; the introductory portion provides a suggested web reference to review these requirements.

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS: The State of California has costly and complex registration requirements for each county in that state to become what they call “legal document assistants”. Because of these onerous county-by-county requirements, Standard Legal has chosen not to provide document preparation services to any California resident. Should a California resident place an order for Document Preparation, Standard Legal will email you asking if you wish to convert that order into one for legal forms software. If so, we will credit the price difference between the two orders and send you links to access your software download. California residents can also use our FREE Attorney Find service to find a local attorney, if they prefer to have legal documents drafted for them.

That’s because legal forms software can be a challenge for people who aren’t computer savvy, or who aren’t knowledgeable about the law. Downloading the software, opening the files, reading the instructions, then correctly completing the documents can be a bit intimidating.

The four-step process for using our Legal Document Preparation Service is simple:

1) Review the Document Preparation topics available and purchase the service you want.

2) After checkout, Standard Legal will provide a link to an online questionnaire or will email you a questionnaire specific to the topic you purchased. Simply access the online questionnaire or reply to that email: read each question and answer it as clearly and completely as you can. (If you find the written Q&A process too difficult, simply call or email us to schedule a phone conference; we will call at the arranged time to ask those same question over the phone, taking down your answers exactly as you give them to us.)

3) Standard Legal will review the information you provide to us from this questionnaire, checking it for consistency, completeness, spelling, grammar and other basics. We will then forward a confirmation email to you outlining the data that has been collected. If a response to a question is omitted or unclear, Standard Legal may contact you again to obtain additional information.

4) Within 3 business days after this final data confirmation, Standard Legal will provide the legal documents you have ordered in PDF format by email, which you then print out yourself. Detailed instructions covering what to do with the signed, fully executed documents are provided as well. If you do not have access to a printer, Standard legal offers printed documents delivered by first-class mail for an additional fee during checkout.

See? Simple, affordable and stress-free. That’s the process for Standard Legal’s Document Preparation Services!



By law, Standard Legal is not authorized to advise you as to which documents you should use or may need. Such advice would be considered the “practice of law.” Under the guidelines for legal document preparation services, you must make all legal decisions yourself, including decisions about the type of documents you need.

Standard Legal provides detailed descriptions of each of the document sets available for use in its preparation services. Standard Legal can also provide a sample of each document, so that you can see a portion of any document so that you can be sure that the completed document will meet your needs. Detailed information concerning each specific document preparation topic is also available, as well as general information about most subjects at the Standard Legal Law Library.

After you have reviewed the sample forms, read the topic-specific information we offer concerning the documents, and have reviewed our Law Library articles, if you still do not know which document or service will best suit your needs, you should either consult an attorney before choosing your documents or consider having an attorney handle your case. Visit our Attorney Find program for details if you choose that route.

Then you should! Standard Legal offers a variety of do-it-yourself legal form software titles that you can purchase and prepare on your own, which will save you even more money. If you know which forms you need and feel that you have the ability to prepare the documents yourself on your computer, Standard Legal’s self-help software is the way to go! Learn more >



Say you’ve already purchased one of Standard Legal’s do-it-yourself legal form software titles.

Then you decide that you would be better served having one of our professionals prepare those same legal documents for you.

No worries! Standard Legal will credit the full price of the software you’ve already purchased against the price of the document preparation service you want!

So if you’ve already purchased the Last Will and Testament software for $14.95 and then decide you want Standard Legal to prepare a completed Will document for you, we will deduct the $14.95 you’ve already spent on the software from the price of the document preparation service! It’s how we treat customers with respect.

NOTE: the title of the software purchased and the type of document you wish to have us prepare must match. In other words, credit is provided only if you want us to prepare a Will document and you previously purchased the Will software. Further, the software purchase must have been made in the same name as the person for whom the documents will be prepared, and that purchase must be verifiable in our records.
