Why does your organisation need 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. 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 conduct policy will outline the standards of conduct that are required while working for the employer. Or leave policy may outline what is considered acceptable in terms of presenting a medical certificate when an employee is absent.
Sound workplace 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.
