hether you have tens or hundreds of employees, well-written human resource policies and procedures protect your organization
Employers can use a variety of methods to communicate policies, procedures, and work rules to employees. Employee handbooks are typically the most popular format and explain information regarding the organization's history and culture, what the employee can expect from the employer and what the employer expects of the employee to include an overview of total rewards and other information.
Employee handbooks, if properly designed, are excellent tools to improve communication of policies and procedures, build more effective employee relations, enhance the image and reputation of the organization, improve productivity and minimize the employment practice related risk of your organization. Puiggari and Associates Consulting Services will customize HR policies and procedures that serve as a road map for addressing workplace issues, including workplace health and safety, standards of conduct, leaves of absence, harassment, and termination. Not only do clearly stated policies and procedures minimize legal liability, but they also creates an environment focused on operational issues, not drama.
Puiggari and Associates Consulting Services will review your existing handbook if available and/or develop a new handbook tailored to your specific needs which complies with state and federal law. For example, did you know that if you are subject to the FMLA, the statute requires that the requirements of the FMLA be provided in the employee handbook or that in Montana state law requires employees be provided a grievance policy if you are to have a defense per the statute for a termination for cause?
Typically, our review takes an in depth look at linkage to:
- State and Federal employment related policies
- General guidance concerning work related behavior
- Rules and regulations
- Salary and benefit information
