6 Things to Have in Your Workplace Policies

In Show 094 – 6 Things to Have in Your Workplace Policies originally broadcast on Facebook Live on Monday 28 May 2018 where we explore this interesting topic.

Show Notes

Today on Fast Fix we get into the nitty-gritty of what you need in your workplace policies.  Every company needs to have their policies clearly laid out well before they start Phase 4: Hiring new employees.  Here are the top six things that are an absolute must

1. Workplace safety

Every company needs to have workplace safety procedures clearly laid out.  This is especially true if you operate in one of the trades like construction.  But they also need to be there for office based jobs like law firms.

2. Discipline policies

What do you do when your staff does the wrong thing? Those policies need to be clearly laid and then, most importantly, they have to be followed.

3. Device use policies

Everyone has a device these days. When can they be used and who can use them?

4. Work hours and turnaround time

Work times have become increasingly flexible but an employer is still expected to clearly describe when an employee will be working.

5. Debt collection policies

If you don’t have a policy in place about how and when to get paid you are in real trouble.  You need cash to survive!

6. Refund or return policies

Your staff needs to know how and when customers can return and merchandise they have purchased from your business.

More about this Show

We started Business Legal Lifecycle to create a simple way for you to understand complex legal terms.  Most importantly we want to help you to develop a plan to take your business successfully into the future.  There’s a startling statistic the underscores the importance of developing a solid plan.  The majority of business owners are just seven months away from losing everything.  A single aspect of your business that is not set-up correctly can shut down your whole operation very quickly.   Legal advice is not cheap and even when you can afford it there is often a divide between lawyers and their clients.  We want to close that gap once and for all.  We want to put legal knowledge and tools into your hand to prevent the worst from happening to you.

Twice a week we are going to deliver those tools right to your home or office with Business Legal Lifecycle TV.  We’ll start the week with Fast Fix Monday, a short 5-10 minute video that will tackle a single issue that businesses have to deal with.  Then on Wednesday’s our main show will feature with more fulsome discussions and interviews all delivered in a straightforward and easy to understand format.
