In the grand scheme, an employer's goal in issuing an employee handbook is to obtain all of the above-mentioned advantages that a handbook offers, while minimizing the recognized risks associated with handbooks. In more practical terms, the core objective of any handbook is to inform the workforce of the employer's policies and procedures of general application. The most rudimentary handbook should spell out the basic terms and conditions of the employment relationship in clear, easily understood language; that is, it should set forth what the employer expects of its workforce and what employees can expect from their employer.
