Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Answers to the most common questions about the Australian Employee Manual products

Instant HR Policies & Procedures & NDIS HR Manual Questions

Is the employee handbook up to date?
We review the package in full at the beginning of each year and after every major legislative update to ensure the content is always current.
Are all the bonuses included in the price?
Yes. You get the full manual as well as all of the bonuses included for the one price.
Are updates included?
You get access to 12 months of update included in your initial purchase. After 12 months, you will be billed a low renewal rate annually to retain access to every update issued each year. That’s ongoing peace of mind!
Are they easy to customise?
All the documents come in either Word format (so you can edit them) or PDF (for purely informational documents that you don’t need to edit). If you can use the basic features of Word, you can edit these documents. We also include instructions so you can update your contents page when you are finished editing.
Can you customise the documents for me?
While most businesses find they don’t need any extra help editing their manual, if you do have a challenging HR issue then we recommend you work with a local HR consultant to get one-on-one attention.
Why do you recommend we run our final employee handbook past our lawyer?
Employment relations in Australia is highly complex. No template package can cover every business structure, or unique employment challenge. That’s why we recommend every employee manual (no matter whether developed by using our templates or in conjunction with a HR consultant), be run past your lawyer to ensure your specific circumstances are taken into account.
Does it come in a bundle or can I buy just one or two?
Our policies, procedures and forms come in one big bundle. Unfortunately, we don’t provide single policies or forms. The reason we do it this way is to make it simpler for businesses. In the early days, we had feedback that single policies simply added to the confusion for small businesses, rather than solved problems. Also, by supplying it as a bundle we reduce administrative overheads, which means we can pass on the savings to small businesses.
Does it include full WHS policies & procedures?
While we do include some general WHS policies, unfortunately, the legislation still is not consistent across Australia. Also, WHS for a mining operation is different to WHS for an accounting firm. You will still need to develop organisation specific WHS policies and procedures for your business.
Why is it so inexpensive?
We regularly get calls from people wanting to know why we don’t charge hundreds more for the package. We believe every business has the right to know how to comply with employment legislation without breaking the bank. That is why we pruned out everything that adds unnecessary cost. There is no fancy additional software, no disks, no packaging and no printing so we can keep costs as low as possible.

Password reset emails can take a few minutes to come through and tend to disappear into spam or junk filters. Hit send and receive on your email program and if the email hasn’t appeared after a few minutes then either give us a call on (07) 3351 8844 or send us an email at info@employeemanual.com.au and we will manually reset your password for you.

I have reset my password and now appear to be in the back end of the website and can't see my downloads

To get you back to where you need to be, we need to first log out of the back end of the website. To do that, hover the mouse over your name in the top right-hand corner of the page, and then click Log Out.
