Re: Staff Handbook

I would like to ask, is it wrong for a staff to kept a copy of staff handbook? Because currently my HR refused to give us a copy and declare it as confidential. Any of the staff want to read it need to read in front of HR. Is there any policy stated regarding this staff handbook.

It would be ideal if every employee could get one. But there is no law to say that employers must do it. It is entirely up to company to give or not to give.

i think its ok if we didn't get it , but maybe should be publish, right? Right now they set it as confidential and we cannot read it unless get permission from them.However in our offer letter every clause need to refer to staff handbook. And when re request for it we need to read in front of the HR Officer. While as a staff we cannot read the document any other place in the company unless in HR Room.

what so confidential about handbook? it is called employee handbook because it should be with the employee at all times. Not a good practice, company should be transparent so that staff are aware of the rules & regulations of the company.

What do you mean when you said "...in our offer letter every clause need to refer to staff handbook. "? Is it something like ::

Sick Leave = please refer to clause xxx of the company handbook instead of say 8 days per year;
Annual Leave = please refer to clause xxx of the company handbook instead of xxxx of days per year?

and so on?
