Sometimes the best way to avoid issues is planning ahead. Having policies and systems in place to deal with the multitude of issues employers face can save you a lot of costs and aggravation down the road.
Drafting and preparing clear and concise workplace policies that protect companies and their employees is something the lawyers at Taylor & Blair have been assisting organizations with for years. We can work with you to develop a company handbook that outlines policies, procedures and day-to-day expectations specific to your organization. There are a number of different areas an employer need to consider when it comes to policies and related systems:
- Health and Safety policies;
- Drugs & alcohol policies;
- Privacy policies;
- Harassment policies;
- Attendance policies;
- Social media policies;
- Internet and email usage policies;
- Work from home (WFH) policies; and
- Employee conduct policies.
The areas above are just a few examples of workplace policies that could be the right fit for your organization and can significantly assist with managing risk moving forward.
