I am a foreigner and my contract is extended on a yearly basis. My contract have some provisions on the Medical terms but my company follows the "Employee Handbook for permanent staff" to some extent.

When I query our HR that I am not permanent staff, they said it doesn't matter, since they don't have the employee handbook for contract staff it shall apply.

Nowhere in my contract say that Employee Handbook shall apply.

Is our HR correct in doing this?

I think it is good for the company handbook not to treat local and foreign workers differently, may be accused of discrimination if it does. By the way, why do you think the handbook should not be applicable to you and it there anything wrong with the handbook? If you think the terms and conditions or regulations in the book are inadequate, you can always try to negotiate for better ones when contract renewal comes.
