Employee Handbooks Essex

A contract sets out the basis of the relationship between the employer and employee. It is a legally binding document and can only be varied by mutual agreement.

To provide context to the contract a handbook or suite of policies are necessary. The policies lay out in more detail how the various aspects of the relationship work , e.g. how to book a holiday, what to do if you are sick, how the disciplinary and grievance process works.

The handbook is the employee’s document it is not part of the contract and can be varied without employee agreement particularly if legislative changes require policy changes
