When creating a handbook it is critical that all processes are legally compliant, fit for purpose and reflective of business values.

Under the Employment Rights Act 1996 it states that any employee employed for longer than a month is entitled to have access to an employee handbook and should be provided with an employment contract.

Failure to comply to the standards set out by the Employment Rights Act 1996 may allow for tribunals to adjust compensatory awards by up to 25% but more importantly, day to day, it may also affect staff performance and leave you with no formal agreement on the ‘rules’ surrounding the employment of that person.
