Employee Handbook

An employee handbook provides guidance and information on a company’s mission, vision, values, policies and procedures, and workplace code of conduct. It can be a valuable resource for employees to acquaint themselves with everything they need to know to be successful and safe in your office. An employee handbook also helps protect employers against discrimination or unfair treatment claims by forewarning employees of these policies so they know what to expect.
