Hassle Free HR – Policies and Procedures

Policies and procedures are internal documents which are written to explain your Company’s approach to managing and dealing with particular topics within the workplace, i.e. your Absence Management Procedure may specify the process you will follow for managing any short-term or long-term employee absences from your business, or your Disciplinary Procedure may outline the differences between what you deem to be Misconduct and Gross Misconduct.

Policies and procedures provide a fair and consistent approach to managing your employees. They also let employees know what is expected of them in terms of standards of performance and behaviour. Only by having clearly written HR policies and procedures in place, is ambiguity reduced and communication improved. This will help to create a more harmonious and efficient working environment within your business. If an issue with an employee arises, your policies and procedures will provide you with a compliant framework for effectively managing and resolving that issue.

It is essential for compliance that you have particular policies in place, i.e. a Disciplinary and Grievance Policy. Employees have legal rights within this area and therefore if you dismiss an employee without following an appropriate fair process, an employment tribunal may find the dismissal unfair.

Hassle Free HR can produce the following 'bespoke' policies for you, some of which recognise minimum statutory requirements of employment law and some of which encourage HR best practice.
