Employee Handbooks

Employment Law & HR Services for Businesses

Employee handbooks, sometimes called staff handbooks, are used by many businesses as a useful reference point for members of staff.

Whilst employee handbooks are not a legal requirement, they are recommended and can help to reduce the risk of legal issues caused by employees having improper knowledge of company policy. The employee handbook is often used by businesses to specify the following:

  • Holiday entitlements
  • Sickness/ injury payment conditions
  • Disciplinary procedures
  • Capability procedures
  • Disciplinary appeal procedures
  • Grievance procedures
  • Harassment policies
  • General information about the company

As you can see, having an up-to-date, accurate and relevant employee handbook can be extremely beneficial for businesses.

With so much information to include in employee handbooks, it can be difficult to know where to start.
