Build teams with the backing of employment lawyers
A company handbook (also known as a staff or employee handbook or manual) is a collection of policies, documents, and information that outlines everything employees need to know about working in a company.
The employment policies contained within the company handbook are unique and essential to every business. They help your employees know what’s expected of them in different situations and help to structure your processes.
Examples of when an employee handbook is needed:
“What’s our parental leave entitlement again?”
Taking time out of your busy work day to deal with queries can be difficult. Having all your policies in one place for employees allows staff to self-inform and makes it easier to treat everyone fairly and consistently.
Comply with employment law
From hybrid working policies to disciplinary procedures and health and safety policies, the company handbook is the key to building a solid foundation for complying with employment law in your business.
Protection against claims
In the unfortunate event of an employee bringing a claim against you (for unfair dismissal or discrimination for example), your policies will be a first line of defence.

We are so impressed with how personable and professional the team are, and we don’t hesitate in recommending them to our own clients.
