Human Resources Policies
As an important element to an overall risk management program, the establishment of written compliant and legally defensible policies and procedures is a key foundation to managing an efficient and litigation-free business. While many companies see written policies and handbooks as a restraint, we look at them as an opportunity; an opportunity to clearly define rules, responsibilities, benefits, and all things important to employees in terms of their employment relationship with you.
When employees understand expectations and obligations, they are more productive because they can focus their attention to their job responsibilities. Key benefits of establishing policies and procedures include:
• Unambiguous statement of expectations for behavior and performance
• Evidence of legal compliance with federal and state laws
• Fair and consistent employment practices
• Roadmap and resource for outlining benefits associated with employment
