The Employee Handbook can be considered as a “Code of Conduct” for the employees. It provides for mandatory terms and processes that are not always included in standard labor contracts. The content of the Employee Handbook may differ depending on the industry.

It helps to create a corporate culture and to institutionalize company values, so it is easier to demonstrate that an employee has breached the company rules in case of labor dispute. The Employee Handbook shall be signed by every employee and reference to the Employee Handbook shall be made by every labor contract to support the employer’s defense in a labor dispute.
