Handbooks, policies and procedures

Perhaps you do not have a staff handbook or you may have identified a need to introduce new policies to clarify your expectations to your staff. Company handbooks are an essential component of any modern business and we will work with you to clearly express your policies and expectations.

A well drafted handbook provides clear guidance to employees. It shows them what is expected and enables the employer to ensure that every member of the team abides by their employment rules and, when things go wrong, there are policies to deal with grievances and other potential problems.

We can offer you a comprehensive review of your current handbook to ensure it is fully up-to-date and fit for purpose. If any redrafting is necessary or you require new policies and procedures, our experts will provide fresh documentation for a fixed fee
