Having a staff handbook isn’t a requirement of businesses, but it can be an extremely useful resource in assisting employers and employees to manage their relationship with each other. A well drafted staff handbook establishes the guidelines and procedures to be followed in a variety of different circumstances and is generally used in conjunction with the contractual terms, set out in the contract of employment.
A staff handbook keeps staff well-informed and effectively sets the expectations for both the employee and the employer. In our experience, the existence of a well drafted staff handbook can foster better employment relations and prevent disputes developing.
