A personnel policy manual defines the employer-employee relationship,
which sets employer expectations, limits employer liability and minimizes
inconsistent decision making in the workplace.
Comprehensive personnel policies provide employees
with fair and consistent guidelines for performing
their duties. They also alleviate confusion
about issues such as employee conduct, reporting
procedures and employee assistance programs. Effective
policies and procedures enable employees
to fully understand tribal expectations and operating
systems, aid in compliance with applicable federal
and state regulations and decrease or eliminate
conflicts between managers and employees.
Using a practical approach, this class will provide you with the key information that you need to develop or revise your organization’s personnel policies and procedures. You’ll learn what every policies and procedures manual must include, plus examine how employment laws apply to your organization’s policies. Through hands-on exercises, you’ll determine where your organization is in the manual process and develop an action plan for drafting or revising your policies and procedures.
During this class, our expert will guide you through the development
of position descriptions, wage and salary plans,
promotion and demotion procedures, discipline
and grievance guidelines and more. You’ll learn
common terminology/definitions and review the
finer points of drafting and editing an employee
manual or handbook. Don’t forget to bring your current personnel policy
manual and supporting documents for an assessment and consultation.
