Does anyone know if employers handbook applies to all staff regardless of the contracts. :???:

I would have thought so, unless one of our employment gurus knows otherwise. Is there any preamble that states any categories of employee it does or doesn't apply to?

I would imagine that it applies to all staff equally unless exemptions exist by either custom or individual contracts.

 

Therefore, an act of Gross Misconduct (say, fraud) would apply to all staff, whereas certain IT activities (say using somebody else's terminal) might be contrary to company policy for some workers but necessary for certain managers and obviously for IT staff.

 

It would be impossible to produce individual handbooks, or a one size fits all version, so this would provide a framework from which certain individuals were permitted to deviate from specific clauses in the course of their role, or due to their status within the company.


Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.

Many thanks Sidewinder for your reply, it was said at a meeting that a colleague should not take notice of other staff because they are on different contacts. this was in relation to DDA and holidays entitlements. :)

Allwood, I think I'm right in saying that a handbook isn't a contract. I don't know the rules about different classes of employees having different holiday entitlements, but I'd have thought the DDA applied across the board.

 

Have you or your friend talked to ACAS about this?
