Employee Handbook Contents – A brief guide For Jersey Businesses

Employment Law | Jersey Business Legal Services

While not legally required, Jersey employers [1] should always consider having a Jersey employment handbook.

1. Introduction to your Jersey business mission culture and values

An employment handbook which outlines your business mission and culture can be a valuable tool in building a sense of belonging with your employees. It also introduces new employees to your business’ culture.

2. Employer expectations

The Jersey employment handbook will outline to all employees and the Jersey employer [1] what is expected in the workplace. A handbook will assist you as the employer, in communicating your Jersey business policies regarding employment, conduct and behaviour, compensation and other policies and procedures you follow.

3. Provides information as to policies and procedures

Typically a Jersey employment handbook contains information about the employer’s business compensation policies, employee benefits and workplace rules. What is important is to ensure that your employment handbook is kept up-to-date with regard to Jersey employment law.

4. Provides employees with information regarding what they can expect from management and leadership

An employment handbook can also provide employees with information about objectives and leadership styles, as well as management best practices, to foster healthy management-employee relationships.

5. Helps defend against employee claims

The Jersey employment handbook should be designed as a referral point should issues arise [2], regarding employer/employee relations. Whether it be a health and safety issue, redundancy or misconduct, a well-written employee handbook will assist all parties in outlining how the relevant process will be followed.

It also follows that if you have an employee handbook, but as a Jersey employer you don’t follow the policies and procedures, you can end up facing difficulty in the Jersey employment tribunal should an employee bring proceedings against your business.
