A policy is an official procedure and rule tied to employment law that prescribes how particular issues should be handled in the workplace, such as the duties and rights of employees. Employers must adhere to HR policies to avoid government penalties for non-compliance. A successful policies and practices strategy draws boundaries and also recognizes and addresses employees’ needs. It’s important to state consequences for violations of behavioral standards clearly so that employees understand expectations and have adequate notification of any consequences. Also, explicit consequences help ensure that employers are not limited in their options for dealing with employees’ inappropriate behaviors.
