Human Resources Policies
Human Resources policies are essential to creating clarity and alignment throughout small, medium and large employers. First, Human Resources policies must be fully compliant with employment laws and regulations. Second, Human Resources policies must be aligned with the objectives and culture of the employer.
I will review and update Human Resources policies to accomplish these two requirements. I will develop a deep understanding of a client’s operations and culture prior to conducting Human Resources policies reviews and updates. As required, I will consult with an employment lawyer to insure compliance with appropriate employment laws and regulations. Engaging my service first will be more cost effective for clients than engaging a legal counsel to undertake the entire process.
I will work with clients to develop and deliver communications to employees about the revised Human Resources policies. I will work with clients to define and communicate the special responsibilities of managers and leaders.
I have specific recent expertise in reviewing and updating harassment and discrimination policies.
Allegations of harassment and discrimination must be dealt with promptly, thoroughly and fairly. This is essential in protecting the employer from liability.
Prompt, thorough and fair investigations can also form a key element in creating and maintaining a positive workplace.
I will work with clients to first determine if the allegations require a formal investigation by determining if their is a potential breach of the client’s policies and / or the law.
I will conduct investigations promptly, thoroughly and fairly. I will document the investigation, findings and recommendations.
I will support client management in determining appropriate resolutions to complaints and will support appropriate communications to the parties involved.
If the client wishes, I will secure all confidential materials offsite.
