Document Type Microsoft Word
Build Time: 15 Min


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

This Employee Handbook has been designed around the expectations, policies and procedures that are to apply to your employees. The provision for the existance of an Employee Handbook is provided in all of LAWLIVE™'s offers of employment and contract documents. An Employee Handbook 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 Handbook are complied with.

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

This Handbook includes the following:
