I bought one on line and modified it.
It was about 80 pages and a lot more inclusive than what you'll ever make up on your own. Things like jury duty, deaths in family, and other things that you can't think of. Had a job application, interview questions etc.

Cost about 80 bucks.

I notice quite a few examples in a quick internet search, using 'free employee handbook' as a search term.

That's all wonderful, but I have no way of telling if the templates are any good; an error in one could come back to haunt you.

By comparison, I can reccomend anything published by IICLE - though you will still want to consult with local consel, their publications will give you a very good primary education. Here's a link:
