There are some basic Policies & Procedures that every employer must have in place to be compliant with employment legislation. Health & Safety is the one most employers are aware of, but not every employer has a Workplace Bullying & Harassment Policy prominently displayed and accessible to employees. Nor do all employers notify employees’ of their right to access a PRSA (personal retirement saving account) facilitated, not funded, by the employer. Policies on the use of social media, at and relating to, the work place is an area employers now need to consider.
Robust Policies & Procedures should be viewed as much more than just an obligation and a box ticking exercise. Designed correctly they bring clarity to both the employer and employee of what exactly is expected and acceptable from both perspectives. Let the HR hub take care of your Policies & Procedures while you get on with what you do best.
