What is the purpose of an Employee handbook?

Why to have an employee handbook, how it dovetails with employment contracts and minimizes risks of Tribunal claims

An 'Employee handbook' is a useful document to ensure your employees understand fully the administrative processes of your organisation, in addition to your policies and procedures on a number of employment-related issues. For example, you can use an 'Employee handbook' to outline your business's dress code and policy on company cars and bonus schemes, as well as employment law issues such as maternity/paternity leave and grievance procedures.
