It’s a sensible plan to have a staff handbook that is easily available with well drafted policies. This makes for a better relationship with your employees. It helps morale when employees know what you expect of them and what they can expect from you.
If an Employment Dispute arises, clear policies make it easier to establish if there has been any wrongdoing or how an issue might be resolved. This is particularly important in grievance and disciplinary matters.
Employment legislation is always changing, so it may be time to review your existing handbook to bring it in line with best practice. Our Employment Law Training may also assist you in keeping up to date with what the law requires.
