Employee Handbook

Employee Handbook, staff handbook, sometimes called 'House Rules'.
Documents and sets out standards expected within the employment relationship.

Used in conjunction with an Employment Agreement each employee needs to have a copy if you use one.

Employment Agreements sometimes get cut down in size due to use of a Handbook, since all the standard terms can get moved to the Handbook such as Sick Leave or Holiday pay etc, leaving the Employment Agreement shorter and containing only clauses pertaining to the particular staff member and any mandatory requirements by law.

It is important to ensure you don't have conflicting clauses in the Employment Agreement and the Handbook because Employees will usually be able to argue the less favourable terms against the Employer. Ensure any changes or amendments made to any agreement, are also made in the Handbook.

With about 90 common clause groups and nearly 200 clauses in this template you have a lot of scope to put together a highly robust and up to date handbook for your business.
