The benefits of creating a staff handbook for your business in Bradford
No matter what size your business it is important to ensure that everyone working within the organisation understands internal rules and procedures. A staff handbook allows you to set out these rules and procedures within your company and it saves you time training when a new employee is hired. This particular document can be extremely valuable if disputes occur within the working environment. By signing a staff handbook employees at your business are stating that they understand what’s inside and they also promise to abide by it. We will be able to create a customisable and bespoke staff handbook which allows you to lay out the rules that are right for your business.
When creating a staff handbook there are many choices and options that you have. Examples can include how long someone must work to be considered full-time how often employees at your business are paid and whether you offer direct deposit when paying these members of staff. There are however certain things that you are not legally allowed to include within your staff handbook for example you cannot have sections that expressly prohibit employees from practising certain religions as this would make your company liable for discrimination claims brought against you.
