Does anybody have experience in writing employee documentation like handbooks and employee agreements?

What do you need to know?

What provisions are typically found in an employee agreement, besides confidentiality of information and non-compete clauses.

The first page of our handbook is an “Important Notice” that each employee has to sign indicating that they understands that the handbook does not constitute a contract and that the employee understands that he/she is an at will employee. This disclaimer is required in South Carolina. If an employer does not have this on the first page of the handbook underlined and in capital letter and signed by the employee, the handbook will be construed has a contract between the employer and employee by the courts.

I was HR in Canada (British Columbia). Smaller companies, in my experience, usually had nothing or next to nothing. Employee agreements were not common except with larger companies, especially chains, and for higher wage earning positions. Those that had employee agreements would have much of what Innkeeper listed.
