    Answered . A handbook is a general guidelines governing employment, and is not a contract which can be binding. However, some of the guidelines can have contractual meaning. Also, you should note the guidelines regarding progressive discipline and terminable offenses. Furthermore, Nevada is at will state which means you can quit your job at your will, and likewise your employer can terminate you at their will. However, you can contest if you was terminated because of race, gender, age, public policy restrictions.
