Policies and procedures are company documents that are a living document. This means that as the business changes and evolves so do your policy and procedures. For example, at the beginning you may just have a smoking policy and bullying policy then after a couple of years you may decide to incorporate a surveillance policy into the mix.
We can ensure that your policies are up to date and in accordance with any current legislation.
You can, of course, have no policies but you may want to put into place some that make sense to your business. Businesses that are growing often want to put into place a dress policy because of the variation of ages or dress styles in the workplace. Or you may want to have a particular PPE that is important to your business on hand each day as part of your policies.
We draft, review and advise on a variety of policies.
One large policy is tempting and quite common. Just remember that the longer the document the less likely the middle will be read. People usually flick through the front and back and miss large chunks of the middle.
This depends on the type of policy it is. For example, you may want to change the smoking policy because laws have changed over the past few years but if you are using a bullying policy from 5 years ago it is probably okay today.
Yes, and you should not capture everything in your employment contract. Policies are made to be living documents contracts are too rigid for that.
