The employer must also keep a separate handbook for each homeworker. The information must be entered by the employer or the person distributing or collecting homework on behalf of the employer each time work is given out or received from a homeworker. The handbook must remain in the homeworker's possession, except for the time necessary for the employer to make entries. Upon completion of the handbook or termination of the homeworker, the handbook must be returned to the employer (Iowa Admin. Code Sec. 875-216.31(91D)et seq.).
