Establishing Company Policies
It can sometimes happen that an employee may suddenly find they have unexpectedly broken a rule or procedure they were unaware was company policy because they were never officially informed. Policies and procedures at work provide a road-map for day to day operations.
This can be the case where a company – often a small business – has neglected to set out important procedures and requirements in writing, such as in a formal company handbook.
The rules, practices and guidelines that you should be informed of in writing as key company policies in place at your specific employment, include:
- Health and Safety
- Conduct and Behaviour
- Leave of Absence
- Disciplinary Procedures
- Equal Opportunity
A written company policy can be critical in ensuring that when Michael Legal Firm acts on your behalf with your
