Employment Contracts, Policies and Workplace Procedures

Today’s workplaces are changing, and workplace policies need to reflect the shifts that are occurring. Addressing the latest trends by updating employee policies and manuals can help set clear boundaries, prevent misunderstandings in the workplace, and ultimately protect your business. 

As a business owner, it’s vitally important that your employment contracts and policies are up to date. But, staying on top of documentation hasn’t been easy during the pandemic, with the day-to-day running of your business taking center stage.

As a result, your employment contracts and policies might not yet reflect the way your business now works. That may mean having to include changes to working hours, update your sick leave policy, or amend policies impacted by the Work Safely Protocol.

In this webinar, our Subject Matter Expert will discuss about the fundamentals of employment contracts and policies. We will explain how having solid employment agreements in place can protect your business.

Webinar Description:

HR roles are not one size fits all. Depending on the title, an HR worker’s responsibilities can vary significantly. Some HR managers are solely responsible for staffing, others concentrate on employee development, some deal strictly with compensation and benefits, and others—the generalists—do it all.

But regardless of individual job function, Labor Law compliance is a key responsibility of every HR role. The law touches every profession that falls under the HR umbrella in some way.

HR Professionals are responsible for strategically managing employees within an organization while remaining compliant with laws that govern employee rights and employer obligations. If an organization violates these complex and ever-changing regulations, it exposes itself to risk, including lawsuits, financial losses, and reputation damage.

Since non-compliance can result in such serious consequences, there is a strong demand for industry workers who possess knowledge of HR laws and common legal issues in the workplace.

This webinar is specially developed to provide refresher to all levels of staff to the Employment Law compliant, HR documentation and procedures in managing employees. Review the significant and cost effect of the revolving employment laws affecting your human resource documentations and employee’s interactions.

Webinar Objectives:

The specific objectives of this unique fun-filled online learning experience are:

  • For the participants, to have a better appreciation on how they can use company personnel policies and contracts (with their employees) as effective HR tools for preventing people problems and solving legal issues;
  • To have a deeper understanding of management prerogative, and how to express and enforce it more effectively through company policies and HR documents; 
  • To have a deeper understanding of the law on contracts, and how to effectively negotiate and enforce contracts and quitclaims in relation to employment; and
