The Employee Handbook is a Krusty Krab guidebook that appears in the film The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.


It is a light velvet book that is very detailed and contains a lot of pages. The pages are also in fine print, so they require a magnifying glass to view them. The cover also has a Krabby Patty on it.

The magnifying glass reveals the following section of text:

"No employee may, in part or in whole, commit the Krabby Patty secret formula to any recorded, written, or visual form, including memories, dreams, and/or needlepoint."

Role in movie

SpongeBob reads the handbook in order to inform Mr. Krabs that he is not permitted to memorize the Krabby Patty secret formula as per the rules detailed in it.
