Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer a free or low cost employee handbook template that I can use to create my own employee handbook?
No, we don’t. The reason for this is that we believe employee handbooks are important enough to have an expert involved throughout the creation process. This ensures that the handbooks is tailored to your specific business while staying legally compliant.
Although many free or low cost handbook templates offer a good starting point, they cannot anticipate every employee issue your specific business faces every day. Because of this, you will be tempted to make changes to the template; however, the cost of getting something wrong in a handbook can be significant.
And all it can take is using one wrong word – for example, using “working hours” instead of “working time” in your solicitation and distribution policy. Suddenly, your handbook is no longer legally compliant and you’re carrying more potential legal exposure than the cost of having our experts create a handbook for you.
By hiring us to help you, you’re not just buying an employee handbook; you’re buying piece of mind.
