Staff policies and procedures are an essential part of the smooth running of a business. A staff handbook or any individual policies contained on an intranet (for example), should be non-contractual and therefore do not contradict or impact on individual contracts of employment. This ensures that employers have the flexibility to change its policies in future, without needing to consult with all staff.
Such policies are a really helpful resource to have in place. Not only do they set out how the employer conducts its business and complies with all the relevant employment legislation, but it’s also an incredibly helpful reference point for both individual employees and managers.
- If a member of staff has discovered that she is pregnant but does not know what to tell her employer or when, then she can review the maternity leave policy which sets out her entitlements to leave and pay and the notification requirements she needs to give.
- Similarly, for a manager who is dealing with an under-performing team member, they can review the performance management policy which sets out both the informal and formal steps they should be taking to support the individual and implement a performance review plan.
We have a range of documents and policies that can assist your business.
We can provide:
- Individual policies – We can either provide such policies or review your existing documents;
- Template handbooks (both short form and long form) depending on the number of staff and needs of the business;
- Similarly we can also review your existing handbooks and bring them up to date.
