A well-drawn Employee Handbook Template can be an important record that will assist and support you, as an employer, should any legal issues or claims be brought against you.

This Employee Handbook Template has been designed around the expectations, policies and procedures that are to apply to your employees. All of LAWLIVE™'s offers of employment and contract documents provide for the existence of an Employee Handbook.

An Employee Handbook Template should not be a substitute for an employment contract, however in some circumstances employer policies and procedures may form part of the contract. We strongly recommend that employers put in place internal procedures to ensure that company policies and procedures which are promised in the Employee Handbook are complied with.

The Employee Handbook Template sets out those things which are of day to day importance to both the Employer and to employees and it should provide information as well as policies and procedures. This document is only needed once and can be handed to all employees.

Our Employee Handbook Template provides a general guide. Every properly run business should have an Employee Handbook Template/Employment Handbook Template but it must be very carefully prepared because in some circumstances Employer policies and procedures may form part of the employment contract.

This Employee Handbook Template includes the following:

1. Induction Procedure For New Staff Members
