What is a staff handbook?
A staff handbook is a document containing company policies, procedures and practises. This document gives the company and employee a clearer vision of what is expected from both parties.
Is a Staff Handbook a legal requirement?
While staff handbooks are not a legal requirement in the workplace, it is certainly best practice to have one in place. It sets out the rights and responsibilities of staff and employers. Handbooks can be contractual or non-contractual, and it could be the case that some of the information contained in the handbook is a legal requirement, for example information relating to remuneration, holiday and working hours.
