Do you need an employee handbook? 

Having an employee handbook isn't a legal requirement but is certainly good practice. It is a method of collating all the important points which you want to bring to the attention of your employees. As an employer you are required to provide quite a lot of information to your employees and having a central document, whether printed or electronic, is an efficient way of making sure this happens. It also makes it easier for you to keep the information up to date. 
Many HR policies are too complex. Employees never read them and managers don't stick to them. The result is a greater risk of ending up in an Employment Tribunal. We recommend 16 essential but 'easy to read' policies for your handbook. 
We can help you produce an employee handbook that is specific to your needs, easy to read and easy to understand. 
These are the 16 essential policies we provide in our handbooks: 
Holiday pay 
Drugs and alcohol 
Modern slavery 
Social media 
Data protection 
Equal opportunities 
Harassment and bullying 
Maternity and family friendly 
Flexible working 
Performance improvement 
Absence management 
Each policy is adapted to your needs and provided electronically as well as in a printed folder with your company logo. 

Who will read your new policies? 

Apart from being a good source of helpful information for your new employees, employee handbooks have been used by Tribunals to make decisions which have supported the employer. If you are going to have a handbook, make sure it's written well. It may well come to your rescue in any contentious tribunals. Or even better, reduce the risk of a tribunal in the first place.
