Employee Handbook

An employee handbook serves as an orientation manual by providing a new employee with information about the employer such as company policies and procedures. A handbook can also help protect the employer from legal liability. This form contains standard language, including sections for job duties, employee responsibilities, timekeeping procedures, payroll information, employee benefits, and leave policy, but can be customized to fit the unique needs of any employee. This document should be used by employers and is helpful to any human resources department.
