Q & A – Is there any reason why an organization would not want or should not have a handbook?

Q: Is there any reason why an organization would not want or should not have a handbook?

A: Handbooks may not be necessary for all employers.  Small employers may not want or need to address issues in a formal way since many expectations are communicated verbally.  Organizations of any size that cannot or choose not to consistently follow the guidelines outlined in a handbook are better off not having a handbook.
