HR policies

The fast-changing nature of employment law means that it’s important to have a comprehensive set of up-to-date HR policies and procedures in place. These can help to set out the rights and obligations of those responsible for HR as well as those of employees.

There are a wide variety of HR policies which can be adopted. A written health and safety policy is compulsory if you have five or more employees. Other policies can define employment matters such as discipline, employee grievances, parental leave, or deal with issues such as discrimination and equal treatment.The prevalence of IT used by employees and the challenges which it brings, such as data protection and the popularity of flexible working, are addressed by other policies.
