HR Policy

What is HR Policy?

Human resources policies are standards implemented for various employment-related issues affecting managers and employees. These can include procedures in hiring, compensation, work procedures, training, promotions, work environment, closure, and other crucial work activities. The treatment of employees should be also outlined in HR policies. The goal of HR policies is to give an organisation a guideline so that employers can make consistent and logical decisions and guarantee that employees are treated fairly.

Essential Guide for Employers: Navigating HR Laws and Company Policies to Avoid Legal Liabilities

If you are an employer and want to avoid being sued, you must take the time to familiarize yourself with your company’s policies and all laws that affect human resources management.  As an employer, you have legal obligations in the workplace with respect to the health and safety of the employees and the implementation of proper office decorum to avoid unacceptable work behavior such as discrimination, harassment, and workplace bullying. An employer, and its senior officers, may face severe penalties for failing to comply with work health and safety duties. 

Any business, especially a new or small business, may be tempted to ignore the task of writing a human resource policy in favor of concentrating on other business operations where they can increase profit. Avoid getting off to a bad start!  Business owners who invest the time to write solid, comprehensive HR policies will be much more prepared to succeed in the long run than those who deal with each individual policy decision as it arises. Such a system could destroy your company.
