Get in control with the right workplace policies.
Workplace policies (sometimes located in an Employee Handbook) are written statements that clarify to all employees the expected standards of behaviour and performance.
No matter the size of the workplace, it’s critical that employers to cover off the standards and expectations for topics such as:
- Counselling and Discipline
- Bullying, Harassment and Discrimination
- Workplace Health and Safety
- Drugs and Alcohol
- Leave; and
- Internal, Email and Social Media
Why are workplace policies important?
The benefits of implementing sound policies are plentiful. Where clear policies are in place, employees better understand what is acceptable and unacceptable in the workplace and this helps create a more informed and effective workforce. For example, a Code of Conduct will outline the standards of conduct that are required while working for the employer.
Sound policies can also play an important role in the event an employee raises a legal dispute against the employer. For example, where the employer has a well communicated workplace policy about the disputed issue, the employer is likely to be in a stronger position before a court or tribunal. This is because the employer will be able argue that they had taken all reasonable steps to ensure all employees knew the expected standard.
