Restaurant Employee Handbook
Don't let your employee policies and procedures just evolve. Without the written documentation of your employee policies and practices it's like having no definitive policies at all. When policies and procedures are allowed to just "happen" it can lead to misunderstandings, low employee morale and even expensive legal problems.
Having a concise employee handbook helps to avoid potential lawsuits and is the first step in establishing a consistent set of personnel practices. A well-crafted employee handbook is something no restaurant should be without.
Use the Restaurant Employee Handbook Template as a guide to help you develop and document your own unique book of policies, procedures and practices relating to the hiring and employment of your staff. We strongly suggest that you have a competent attorney, familiar with employment law in your area, review your handbook before adopting its contents and distributing it to your employees.
