Employee Handbook


An employee handbook serves as a communication tool between an employer and its employees. Not only does it establish company expectations and legal obligations, it describes employees’ rights and what they can expect in return.

An effectively written employee handbook should:

  • Clearly establish and document the company’s guiding principles
  • Serve as a benchmark for managing workplace behavior
  • Effectively communicate human resources policies and procedures
  • Safeguard the company in the event of employment disputes

Typical topics include:

Workplace Guiding Principles and Commitments
Company Policies and Procedures
Health and Safety
Employment Classification
Performance Management Procedures
Progressive Discipline Practices
Training and Development
Paid Time Off
Leave Policies
Use of Computer and Technology Resources
Compensation Philosophy and Practices
Termination Procedures
Non-Disclosure Agreement and Conflict of Interest Statements
Media Relations
Employee Acknowledgement
