6 Critical Employee Policy Updates for 2018

 

Article by: Reagan Freed, Solvere HR Consulting

The employment landscape changes frequently, as such employers are encouraged to review and update their Employee Handbook every year. Below are six critical policies employers should review and update in their Employee Handbook:

1. Sexual Harassment Policies
2. Employment Opportunity Policies
3. Review Reasonable Accommodation Policies
4. Comply with New and Updated Leave Laws
5. Safe Driving Policies
6. Amend Smoke-Free Workplace Policies

Don’t have a handbook? It may be time for your organization to build one.  Ask the SBDC for some HR referrals.  Also, did you know that the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment has an Employers Handbook (download the guide at this link) and an Employer Toolkit (click here)?
