Maintaining an efficient and harmonious workplace is critical for the ongoing success of your business. It also ensures compliance with workplace legislation. Employee handbooks are a valuable resource in most businesses and should be seen as a tool to enhance the employer-employee relationship and help defend against wrongful termination, discrimination, and harassment claims. Regardless of organisation size, when properly drafted and legally reviewed, the employee handbook can be the keystone to good employment practices.

Clear written policies can provide a defence against many employment related claims brought by employees. If these policies are merely posted on bulletin boards or conveyed to management for dissemination to employees, there is no way for the organisation to know which employees actually read them. A handbook is a means of uniform distribution of policies and procedures to all employees.

The employment law team at FC Lawyers has extensive experience in drafting employee handbooks for businesses and non profit organisations of all sizes. Our employee handbooks contain detailed documentation of workplace policies, procedures and codes of conduct.

We will ensure that your businesses handbooks are up to date with current laws and written in plain simple terms which can be understood by all parties.

Contact our team today to discuss your employee legal needs.
