An employee handbook is a document prepared by an employer and given to employees during their induction process to inform them about company culture, policies, and procedures. It ensures that all employees are clear about what is expected from them and what they can expect from their employer and gives consistency to how matters are dealt with.
Some of the items that might be included in an employee’s handbook are:
- Equal employment opportunities policy.
- Sick leave and annual leave.
- Extended leaves of absence
- Benefits and incentives.
- Dress code.
- Lunch and break policy.
- Health and safety requirements.
- How to report complaints and incidents.
- Training programmes.
- Harassment policy.
- Accommodations for staff with disabilities.
- Non-disclosure agreement.
- Conflict of interest statement.
- Policy relating to contract termination.
- Remuneration and overtime pay.

- How staff are expected to interact with clients, co-workers, visitors, general public, and so on.
