Writing an Employee handbook


I am re-writing our tired old staff handbook and am looking for ideas/examples/downloadable guides etc on the best way to go about it.

I have a vague recollection that Training Zone advertised something a few months ago but can't now find anything on the web site.

Any help gratefully received.

  1. Use Care in Drafting Employee Handbooks
    Being an employment and labor law attorney, I have worked on drafting/revising language for employers concerning Employee Handbooks. Many of our clients have attempted to cut and paste language that they found on the Internet. This can prove to be a very expensive mistake. Each state (assuming you are in the USA) has its own laws and what may be permissible language in one state may very well be illegal in another state. You should be very careful in drafting the language for your employee handbook. If you do end up using language found on the internet, you would be wise to have a labor/employment attorney review it prior to using the language.

  2. Employee handbook – still can’t find anything
    Sorry I must either be a complete barbie or missing something fundamental. I still can’t find the resource that you refer to. The link to the specific page didn’t want to work for some reason and when I search in that area I’m drawing a blank.



  3. Employee Handbook
    David’s comment is a fair one. The handbook offered through our partner OneClickHR is directed toward a UK-centric membership. HR practitioners outside the UK should be aware that their own legislation may be different.

    Debbie, Phone or e-mail me if you need more help.
