Although an employee handbook can be a valuable part of your workplace, it can also make you vulnerable to claims from your employees that the handbook creates an employment contract. Such a contract could limit your right to discipline and terminate your employees. This Employee Handbook Acknowledgment form can help you guard against such claims because it informs employees clearly and unambiguously that the handbook does not create a contract. You should be aware, however, that if your actions or if documents otherwise create a contract with your employees, this form on its own will not be enough to protect you.
