Unfortunately, it is often overlooked by SMEs that this documentation is a legal requirement of employing staff.
If you do not give these essential documents to your employees they can take you to an Employment Tribunal and could win an award equivalent to four weeks pay.
Although your staff may know this and the other legally required information already, it does need to be written down in set a format. Company Handbooks are required for informing staff about current Employment Law and HR Policies.
These lists are not exhaustive, but they form the core of the company policies of which your employees must be informed.
