Employment Relationship

In the employment relationship section of the handbook, the company explains the hiring policy and preferences for education, experience, and other abilities to perform the duties of the company. In some situations, other criteria may affect the ability to be employed. The handbook should explain how the company identifies the best employees to fit the mission of the company. In addition this section should explain if there is an employment at will issue, a procedure to terminate such as notice etc. In some situations there may be some legal issues in reference to client matters or proper transfer of information upon beginning or ending the relationship. This usually exists with professionally licensed organizations (medical, legal and accounting). Finally, the issue of Exempt and Non-Exempt status of an employee should be discussed in the handbook. The employee should understand his/her status under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
