Every business needs a comprehensive set of employee policies and procedures. These work hand-in-hand with your employment contracts to define the company culture, set expectations and clarify the rules for all employees.
Adopting a proper Employee Handbook will help you to meet your legal obligations, enable managers to make reliable decisions and promote a culture of fairness. This can avoid disputes and grievances caused by confusion and inconsistencies and raises the level of professionalism of your business.
Your Employee Handbook needs to be customized to suit the particular environments in which your staff will be working and the tasks they will be performing (eg, food safety, manual handling, working outside, dress code, code of conduct, etc).
