Use of having employee handbook?

Hi members,

  1. What need to be included in an employee handbook?
  2. Should employment policies be printed in the handbook?

Share sample if anyone has any.


An employee handbook or an employee manual is a document outlining a business’s rules, policies, and expectations for their employees. It also lists what employees can expect from the employer.

Creating an employee handbook shows employees that there are consistent policies for all employees — the same rules and guidelines apply to everyone, and all employees are treated equally.

An employee handbook should include your business’s policies, your expectations of your employees, and what your employees can expect from your business. It should lay out your legal obligations as an employer and your employees’ rights.
