Clearly-drafted workplace policies should be the cornerstone of employee management at any business. In addition to the benefit that accrues from voluntarily-implemented policies, Ontario law explicitly calls for the implementation of certain policies, such as the requirement to have an anti-harassment policy in place.
Keeping up to date with your policy obligations, both those required and suggested by best practice, can be a challenge. Therefore, we regularly work with our employer clients to help simplify the workplace policy process. This can be done in a variety of ways, such as by providing full sets of policies or aiding in the internal generation of such documents. No matter how they come about, make sure your business is protected with policies that address topics such as:
- Sick leave and absenteeism
- Computer usage
- Corporate asset usage
- Progressive discipline
- Workplace violence and harassment
