Policies & Procedures

Equal Opportunity Policies

Equal opportunity laws are rules that promote fair treatment in the workplace. Most organizations implement equal opportunity policies – anti-discrimination and affirmative action policies, for example – to encourage unprejudiced behavior within the workplace. These policies discourage inappropriate behavior from employees, supervisors and independent contractors in regard to the race, gender, sexual orientation or religious and cultural beliefs of another person within the organization.

Attendance and Time Off Policies

Attendance policies set rules and guidelines surrounding employee adherence to work schedules. Attendance policies define how employees may schedule time off or notify superiors of an absence or late arrival. This policy also sets forth the consequences for failing to adhere to a schedule. For example, employers may allow only a certain number of absences within a specified time frame. The attendance policy discusses the disciplinary action employees face if they miss more days than the company allows.

Substance Abuse Policies

Many companies have substance abuse policies that prohibit the use of drugs, alcohol and tobacco products during work hours, on company property or during company functions. These policies often outline smoking procedures employees must follow if allowed to smoke on business premises. Substance abuse policies also discuss the testing procedures for suspected drug and alcohol abuse.

Workplace Security Policies

Policies on security are in place to protect not only the people in an organization, but the physical and intellectual property as well. Policies may cover entrance to a facility, such as the use of ID cards and the procedures for signing in a guest. Equipment such as a company laptop or smartphone may need to be signed out.

Computer security is a high priority for firms these days. Policies cover a variety of topics, such as the frequency for changing passwords, reporting phishing attempts and log-on procedures. Use of personal devices, such as a USB drive you bring from home, may also be restricted to prevent to unintended spread of computer viruses and other malware.
