Whilst Employee Handbooks are not a legal requirement, it is a legal requirement that you manage your employees in line with employment laws and legislation. The Employee Handbook is a useful tool which supports the Contract of Employment and which also lays out the expected requirements of employees against the requirements of the employer.
We endeavour to make all the necessary terms and conditions and employment rights clear to the employer and employee by covering the essential areas of employment practice in the Employee Handbook. This ensures that staff are aware of their rights as an employee but also makes them aware of the rights the employer has and where certain actions can be enforced on employees, this also allows for no misunderstanding in terms of workplace rules. It is highly recommended that all employers of people should have an Employee Handbook in place to support the Contract of Employment and publicise the workplace rules to their staff.
