While not a legal obligation, many employers use staff handbooks as an accompaniment to the terms and conditions of employment contained in the employment contracts.

A staff handbook can detail:

  • Grievance and disciplinary procedures, which should be in line with the Acas code of practice
  • Maternity and paternity rights
  • Holiday entitlement and sickness benefits
  • Information regarding the company’s values and ethos
  • Health and safety practices
  • Anti-discrimination, bullying and harassment policies
  • Flexible working policies
  • Equal opportunity policies
  • Whistleblowing policies

A staff handbook can be contractual or non-contractual. If policies or procedures contained within a handbook form part of an employment contract, then an employer must be sure to adhere to them. Otherwise, it could give rise to a breach of contract claim.
