We can help you produce an employee handbook that is specific to your needs, easy to read and easy to understand. Although each of our handbooks are tailored to your own business by one of our employment solicitors, we offer this service at a single fixed price for the 20 policies. 

Individual and Additional Policies 

If you need a policy that is not included in our standard handbook, or would like to buy individual policies, please get in touch to discuss your needs. The cost of this work will depend upon the complexity of the policy and the work involved.  
We also offer reviews of your existing policies. Reviews are priced based upon the amount of work involved in reviewing them. We will ask to see your documents in order to provide a quote. We will advise you if we believe it is more economical to start over with new policies.

Does my business 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. 

The benefits of easy-to-read policies 

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. 
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.
