A.  An employee handbook is intended to provide an overview of organizational guidelines applicable to the majority of employees.  A supervisor’s manual or policy/procedure manual is far more detailed with procedural information to which only supervisors and managers should have access.  Typically, non-supervisory employees should not have access to a supervisor manual.
